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

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

THUNDERSTORMS WITH DANGEROUS LIGHTNING.
RISK...LIMITED.
AREA...EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS.
ONSET...ONGOING SOUTH OF INTERSTATE 40 AND LATE TONIGHT
NORTH OF INTERSTATE 40.

DISCUSSION...
A SLIGHT CHANCE OF RAIN SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS WILL
CONTINUE TO BE POSSIBLE THIS AFTERNOON ACROSS SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA
AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS AS A FRONTAL BOUNDARY REMAINED POSITIONED
OVER THE REGION. THIS ACTIVITY SHOULD DISSIPATE DURING THE EVENING
HOURS.

ADDITIONAL THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL BE POSSIBLE LATE TONIGHT
ACROSS MAINLY FAR NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA AND FAR NORTHWEST ARKANSAS AS
A WEAK UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE MOVES SOUTHEAST THROUGH THE PLAINS
AND INTERACTS WITH THE FRONTAL BOUNDARY LIFTING BACK NORTHWARD.
ELEVATED INSTABILITY ASSOCIATED WITH THE FRONT AND DISTURBANCE
COULD CREATE THE POTENTIAL FOR A STRONG STORM LATE TONIGHT INTO
EARLY WEDNESDAY MORNING.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION NOT EXPECTED.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY.
WEDNESDAY...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL.
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY...THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL.
SATURDAY...THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL...HEAVY RAIN POTENTIAL.
SUNDAY...THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL.
MONDAY...NO HAZARDS.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
THUNDERSTORM CHANCES INCREASE WEDNESDAY AS THE UPPER LEVEL
DISTURBANCE MOVES THROUGH THE REGION. GREATER PRECIPITATION
CHANCES LOOK TO BE ACROSS FAR EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST
ARKANSAS. INSTABILITY INTERACTING WITH THE DISTURBANCE COULD
ALLOW FOR SOME THUNDERSTORMS TO BECOME STRONG TO POTENTIALLY
SEVERE. THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL REMAIN POSSIBLE WEDNESDAY NIGHT
AND THURSDAY AS WEAK UPPER LEVEL IMPULSES MOVE THROUGH THE PLAINS
WITHIN THE UPPER LEVEL NORTHWESTERLY FLOW.

THUNDERSTORM CHANCES QUICKLY RETURN AND INCREASE LATE FRIDAY NIGHT
INTO THE WEEKEND AS A MORE DEFINED LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM AND COLD
FRONT MOVE THROUGH THE PLAINS. TROPICAL MOISTURE FROM THE
REMNANTS OF HURRICANE ODILE IS EXPECTED TO INTERACT WITH THE FRONT
AND INCREASE THE POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY RAINFALL SATURDAY ACROSS
EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS.
