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

.DAY ONE...Tonight.

SEVERE THUNDERSTORM.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Southeastern Oklahoma and West Central Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing.

HEAVY RAIN and FLASH FLOOD.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Southeastern Oklahoma and West Central Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing.

DISCUSSION...
Thunderstorms will continue to become more numerous ahead of a cold
front moving through northeastern Oklahoma and far northwestern
Arkansas early Tuesday evening. The most unstable conditions will
remain across southeastern Oklahoma and west central Arkansas through
midnight, and the strongest thunderstorm activity capable of
producing strong wind gusts will be in those areas.

Widespread thunderstorms with heavy rainfall are expected to move
through southeastern Oklahoma, as well as west central Arkansas
overnight. Isolated flooding problems may occur if there is any
repeat thunderstorm activity that occurs across the same area over a
few hour period.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Local Spotter Activation May Be Needed.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday.
WEDNESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
THURSDAY and FRIDAY...No Hazards.
SATURDAY through MONDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
The cold front will continue moving southward Wednesday, with
thunderstorms affecting southeastern Oklahoma and west central
Arkansas in the morning. These storms will gradually end during the
afternoon as the front pushes into northern Texas. Fair weather can
be expected Thursday and Friday behind the front, as high pressure
settles into the region.

A slow-moving upper level disturbance approaching the area from the
northwest will bring thunderstorm chances back to the region over the
weekend. The remnants of a tropical system in the southern Gulf of
Mexico this evening is forecast to move northward into southern Texas
this week. Depending on the track of this system, rain and
thunderstorm chances late this weekend and early next week may be
increased across portions of eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas.
