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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.


THUNDERSTORMS WITH DANGEROUS LIGHTNING.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...After Midnight.


DISCUSSION...
A cold front pushing through the area today will stall to the south
and then return to the north as a warm front tonight. Isolated
thunderstorms will be possible across northeast Oklahoma and
northwest Arkansas after midnight. The strongest activity will be
capable of producing dime to nickel size hail...however storms are
expected to remain below severe limits.

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

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

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Warmer temperatures will quickly return by Sunday...along with
south to southwest winds that will gust to near 30 mph at times
during the afternoon.  Dry ground conditions...gusty winds and the
warm temperatures will promote elevated fire danger...especially
across northeast Oklahoma to the northwest of interstate 44.

Several systems will impact the region during the upcoming week
and will offer chances for thunderstorms across at least parts of
the area for the first par of the work week. Another cold front
will move through the area Tuesday...with scattered thunderstorms
expected to develop in the vicinity of the front Tuesday and
Tuesday night. Low chances for showers and storms will continue as
this boundary remains in the area before lifting back north as a
warm front Thursday. A strong upper level system is poised to
impact the plains late in the work week...and will carry the
potential for widespread shower and thunderstorms...along with the
threat for severe weather. Threats and timing concerning this
system will continue to be refined in the coming days.
