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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

HEAVY RAIN.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Far southeast Oklahoma and western Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing.

THUNDERSTORMS WITH DANGEROUS LIGHTNING.
RISK...Elevated.
AREA...East of highway 75 this morning, east of highway 69 this
afternoon.
ONSET...ongoing.

POOR VISIBILITY.
RISK...Elevated.
AREA...East of highway 75.
ONSET...After midnight.

DISCUSSION...

A band of thunderstorms over far eastern Oklahoma will progress
into western Arkansas thru the morning hours. Gusty winds,
dangerous lightning, and heavy downpours will accompany the
stronger storms. Storm potential becomes more isolated this
afternoon mainly east of highway 69.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
TUESDAY...Dense Fog Potential.
WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY...No Hazards.
FRIDAY...High Wind Potential.
SATURDAY and SUNDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...

After mid and high clouds begin to clear by late tonight,
radiational cooling of a moist boundary layer ahead of a frontal
boundary will allow for the development of some fog, some of which
could be locally dense, mainly to the east of highway 75.

Stronger winds and warm temperatures on Thursday will elevate fire
weather concerns. Winds will be gusty behind the cold front
Friday, and the air will be dry, thus fire weather concerns will
remain high on Friday as well.
