This Outlook is for Northwest and West Central Arkansas as well as
much of Eastern Oklahoma.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

POOR VISIBILITY.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Eastern Oklahoma and West Central Arkansas.
ONSET...After Midnight.

DISCUSSION...
Patchy fog may develop after midnight across most of eastern
Oklahoma and west central Arkansas. Visibilities may be under a
mile at times, with visibilities also varying over short
distances.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
SUNDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
MONDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY...No Hazards.
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY...High Wind Potential.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
A band of rain and thunderstorms will move into eastern Oklahoma
mainly after dark on Sunday evening. There is a marginal risk of
severe storms across portions of east central and southeast
Oklahoma along and west of Henryetta to Wilburton to Talihina line.
Damaging winds and perhaps some marginally severe hail would be
the main threats.

Storms are expected to form across North Texas and parts of
southern Oklahoma Sunday afternoon, eventually moving into eastern
Oklahoma and western Arkansas Sunday evening. Instability will be
marginally supportive of severe storms.

One to two inches of rainfall is forecast across southeast
Oklahoma Sunday night into early Monday. The latest data suggest
that the heavier rains will fall south of the Red River however.

Another fast moving storm system is expected to move into the
Plains late in the week, bringing increased winds and an
associated increase in the fire spread potential.
