This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for a Large Part of Arkansas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will be seen today,
mainly over western to central locations. The threat of any
severe storms will be low during the day on Saturday. Also, the
wildfire danger will remain elevated today, although moisture
levels will continue to increase with the elevated south winds.
Many burn bans remain in effect today. Reference the Arkansas
Forestry Commission for details.

Saturday night through Sunday, the chance for storms will increase
significantly as a storm system and cold front move through the
region. A line of storms is generally expected with the front,
with the possibility of some strong to severe storms along this
front. The primary threat will be damaging winds, while isolated large
hail can not be ruled out, and as well as a few isolated tornadoes.
The Storm Prediction Center has an enhanced to slight risk of
severe storms over western Arkansas, while a marginal risk to
parts of central Arkansas.

Locally heavy rainfall and localized flash flooding may also be
seen with storms along the front. The best chance for severe
weather is expected to occur Saturday night through early Sunday
morning mainly across west and northwest Arkansas.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday Through Friday

Lingering thunderstorms will be possible on Sunday morning as the
cold front continues to progress east through the state. Other
than some cloud to ground lightning, the overall threat for
hazardous weather will have decreased.

Expect the cold front to move southeast of the state by Monday.
Cooler and drier conditions will then return to the state for much
of next week.

.Spotter Information Statement...

Spotter activation may be needed Saturday night to early Sunday.
