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

.DAY ONE...This evening through Tonight.

THUNDERSTORMS WITH DANGEROUS LIGHTNING.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.
    ONSET...early evening.

DISCUSSION...
Scattered rain showers along with potential isolated thunderstorms
are expected to develop and move into eastern Oklahoma and northwest
Arkansas this evening in response to a mid level low pressure system
and cold front moving into the region. Instability remains marginal
which should limit any severe potentials across the region.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
TUESDAY and Wednesday...Thunderstorm Potential.
THURSDAY...No Hazards.
FRIDAY through SUNDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Shower and isolated thunderstorm chances will remain possible into
Tuesday before the upper level trough axis moves through the
Plains. Another storm system is forecast to move into Eastern
Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas late this week into the Holiday
weekend...with thunderstorm chances increasing by late Friday.
Severe storms will be possible through the weekend along with
locally heavy rainfall...which may lead to flooding issues due to
the already saturated soils.
