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...northwest Arkansas and neighboring far northeast Oklahoma.
ONSET...after midnight.

DISCUSSION...
A few isolated thunderstorms are possible after midnight tonight
to the north and east of an advancing warm front across far
northeast oklahoma and into northwest Arkansas. Severe weather is
not anticipated.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
SUNDAY and MONDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...High Wind Potential.
TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
THURSDAY and FRIDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...High Wind Potential.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...

An isolated thunderstorm is possible early Sunday morning across
northwest Arkansas. Strong south winds are expected by Sunday
afternoon across northeast Oklahoma, with gusts 30 to 35 mph
possible. The strong winds will raise fire weather concerns, with
the best fire spread potential along and west of highway 75.

Isolated to widely scattered storms are possible along a back
door front Monday night across northwest Arkansas and neighboring
far northeast Oklahoma. Severe weather is not expected. As the
back door front settles down into northeast Oklahoma and northwest
Arkansas on Tuesday, more thunderstorm development is expected,
with the better chances across northern AR going into Tuesday
night. Capping will likely reduce storm coverage across northeast
Oklahoma. A limited severe weather threat will accompany these
storms.

A strong upper level storm system will move into the Plains late
next week. There is still considerable uncertainty in the details,
such as the timing of the upper system. However, there will likely
be at least some potential for severe weather with this system.
Stay tuned to the latest updates as we get closer to this event.
