THIS OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHWEST AND WEST CENTRAL ARKANSAS AS WELL AS
MUCH OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

SEVERE THUNDERSTORM.
RISK...LIMITED.
AREA...FAR SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA.
ONSET...THIS AFTERNOON.

DISCUSSION...
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE TO SPREAD ACROSS EASTERN
OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS THIS MORNING...WITH ADDITIONAL
CHANCES OVER SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA INTO NORTHWEST ARKANSAS THIS
AFTERNOON. THIS IS IN RESPONSE TO A FRONTAL BOUNDARY PUSHING
SOUTHWARD THROUGH THE REGION. AFTERNOON HEATING OVER FAR SOUTHEAST
OKLAHOMA...AHEAD OF THE FRONT...COULD ALLOW FOR AN ISOLATED
POTENTIAL FOR A FEW STORMS TO BECOME STRONG TO SEVERE WITH
LOCALIZED DAMAGING WINDS POSSIBLE.

THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL REMAIN POSSIBLE INTO TONIGHT OVER PARTS
OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS BEFORE THE FRONT PUSHES
FAR ENOUGH SOUTH OF THE REGION.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
LOCAL SPOTTER ACTIVATION MAY BE NEEDED BUT NOT ANTICIPATED.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY.
WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY...THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL.
SATURDAY...NO HAZARDS.
SUNDAY AND MONDAY...THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL CONTINUE TO BE POSSIBLE ACROSS EASTERN
OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS THROUGH FRIDAY BEFORE A LOW
PRESSURE SYSTEM OUT WEST FINALLY MOVES THROUGH THE SOUTHERN
PLAINS. HIGH PRESSURE LOOKS TO MOVE INTO THE REGION FOR THE START
OF THE WEEKEND...THOUGH THUNDERSTORM CHANCES QUICKLY RETURN LATE
IN THE WEEKEND AS ANOTHER LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO
APPROACH THE PLAINS.
