THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR A LARGE PART OF ARKANSAS.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

AN UPPER LEVEL LOW WILL MOVE ACROSS ARKANSAS TODAY WITH SCATTERED
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS EXPECTED MAINLY DURING THE AFTERNOON
HOURS. THE STORMS WILL MOVE SLOWLY...INCREASING THE POSSIBILITY OF
LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN. WHILE A STRONG STORM CAN NOT BE EXCLUDED...THE
OVERALL THREAT FOR HAZARDOUS WEATHER WILL REMAIN LOW THROUGH THE
PERIOD.

AFTERNOON HIGHS WILL ONLY REACH THE MID 80S TO MID 90S DUE TO THE
INCREASE IN CLOUD COVER. HOWEVER...WITH PLENTY OF HUMIDITY STILL IN
PLACE...HEAT INDICES WILL STILL MAKE IT INTO THE UPPER 90S DURING
THE AFTERNOON HOURS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY

MORE SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE FORECAST THROUGH SUNDAY
AS THE AREA REMAINS BETWEEN UPPER LEVEL RIDGES. THUNDERSTORM
CHANCESWILL DECREASE MONDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY AS THE RIDGE BUILDS
OVER ARKANSAS AGAIN. OTHER THAN CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING...SOME
GUSTY WINDS COULD ALSO BE SEEN WITH SOME OF THE STRONGER STORMS.

GIVEN THE SLOW MOVEMENT OF ANY STORMS... LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL WILL
BE POSSIBLE...RESULTING IN AN ISOLATED FLASH FLOOD THREAT. THE
THREAT FOR ANY SEVERE STORMS WILL REMAIN ISOLATED AND LOW.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION IS NOT ANTICIPATED.
