DISCUSSION...
Large swath of showers and thunderstorms over northwest Arkansas
will continue to move off to the northeast this afternoon. Behind
this system scattered showers and thunderstorms will be
possible...generally along and south of Interstate 40. While
rainfall amounts are expected to be lower today, stronger storms
may produce a heavy downpour that could exacerbate flood concerns
for areas that have previously seen recent heavy rainfall. Storms
are expected to dissipate later this evening.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Spotter Activation Not Expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday.
TUESDAY through SUNDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...

Showers and thunderstorms associated with the current system will
move east of the region during the day Tuesday. However...thunderstorm
chances return Wednesday and Thursday as a frontal boundary that
slowly moves into the area during this time period. Another storm
complex within the persistent west to northwest upper flow pattern
may impact the region Thursday night into Friday.  Rain chances
look to decrease by the weekend as upper level ridging begins to
develop over the southern plains.
