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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE LIKELY TODAY AND TONIGHT...AS
ANOTHER IN A SERIES OF UPPER LEVEL WAVES MOVES ACROSS THE REGION.
WHILE WIDESPREAD SEVERE WEATHER IS NOT ANTICIPATED...A FEW STRONG
STORMS ARE POSSIBLE. ANY STRONGER STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF
PRODUCING MARGINALLY SEVERE HAIL AND DAMAGING WIND GUSTS.

ALSO...ANY STRONGER STORMS WOULD BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING HEAVY
RAINFALL. THIS COULD CREATE LOCALIZED FLOODING PROBLEMS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY

SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL REMAIN IN THE FORECAST PRETTY MUCH
EACH DAY THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. HOWEVER...EXPECT GENERALLY
ISOLATED TO WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS...PRIMARILY
DURING THE AFTERNOON HOURS SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY. ORGANIZED SEVERE
WEATHER IS NOT EXPECTED GIVEN THE LIMITED COVERAGE OF THUNDERSTORM
ACTIVITY...BUT AN ISOLATED STRONG TO SEVERE STORM COULD BE SEEN EACH
AFTERNOON.

A COLD FRONT WILL MOVE TOWARDS THE STATE BY THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK.
THIS FRONT COULD BRING BETTER CHANCES FOR MORE ORGANIZED
THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY. HOWEVER...THE POTENTIAL FOR SEVERE WEATHER
REMAINS TOO UNCERTAIN THIS FAR OUT IN TIME.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION IS NOT ANTICIPATED...DUE TO THE ISOLATED NATURE
OF THE SEVERE THREAT.
