DISCUSSION...
STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE NORTH NORTHEASTWARD
AND WILL PRIMARILY IMPACT FAR EAST CENTRAL OKLAHOMA...WEST CENTRAL
AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS THIS EVENING. ALL MODES OF SEVERE WEATHER
WILL REMAIN POSSIBLE...INCLUDING BRIEF TORNADO POTENTIAL.

A TORNADO WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR EAST CENTRAL OKLAHOMA...WEST
CENTRAL AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS UNTIL 10 PM.


ADDITIONALLY...THE WET SOILS WILL MAKE DOWNED TREES A HIGHER
LIKELIHOOD AND PRECAUTIONS SHOULD BE TAKEN TO MOVE INSIDE A
SUBSTANTIAL SHELTER IN ADVANCE OF THE LINE OF STORMS.  THE SEVERE
WEATHER THREAT WILL DIMINISH ONCE THE LINE OF STORMS PASSES YOUR
LOCATION.

AN EQUALLY DANGEROUS THREAT WILL BE THE RAPID ONSET FLASH
FLOODING...WHICH IS EXPECTED AS THE WIDESPREAD RAINFALL CONTINUES TO
EXPAND TO THE NORTHEAST.  RECENT RAINFALL AND SATURATED GROUND WILL
RESULT IN RAPID WATER RISES...AND PREPARATIONS TO MOVE TO HIGHER
GROUND SHOULD BE COMPLETED.  WATER WILL BE SLOW TO RECEDE THROUGH
THE OVERNIGHT HOURS...AND MANY ROADS MAY REMAIN FLOODED THROUGH THE
EARLY MORNING HOURS.


SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
ACTIVATION OF THE REGIONAL SPOTTER NETWORK EXPECTED.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY...THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE UPCOMING
WEEK INTO NEXT WEEKEND.  THERE WILL LIKELY BE SEVERAL
MORE ROUNDS OF HEAVY RAINFALL ACROSS THE REGION WHICH WILL
ONLY WORSEN ONGOING FLOOD CONDITIONS.  LATER FORECASTS
WILL REFINE THE LOCATIONS FOR THE HEAVIEST RAINS.
