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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

THUNDERSTORMS WITH DANGEROUS LIGHTNING.
RISK...Limited.
 AREA...Northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas.
 ONSET...Ongoing.

DISCUSSION...
Scattered showers and thunderstorms ongoing this morning across
portions of northeast Oklahoma as the upper level low pressure
center moves across the area. As the low continues to move
eastward, thunderstorm chances will decrease behind the low with
just scattered showers likely into early afternoon. Cooler air
will move in behind the surface front and help to limit
thunderstorm chances on the backside of the low.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
SUNDAY...Severe Thunderstorm Potential.
MONDAY and TUESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
WEDNESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
THURSDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
FRIDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Sunday will bring another round of strong to severe thunderstorms
to the region as an upper level trough moves out onto the Plains.
Several more storm systems will impact the region as the upper
air pattern becomes more progressive in nature. A system midweek
will bring the chance for heavy rain in addition to the
possibility of severe storms. Another system looks to move in for
the weekend.
