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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

SEVERE THUNDERSTORM.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...West of a Bristow to McAlester to Hugo line.
ONSET...Midnight.

DISCUSSION...
A Marginal risk of severe thunderstorms will exist after midnight
for portions of east central and southeast Oklahoma along and
west of a Bristow to McAlester to Hugo line. Damaging winds and
hail to the size of quarters will be the primary severe weather
threats.

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop this
evening across western and central Oklahoma southward into north
Texas. These thunderstorms will move to the east and northeast,
with some decrease in intensity likely after moving into eastern
Oklahoma early Monday morning, due to lower available instability.
Locally heavy rainfall may fall in parts of southeast Oklahoma,
but the highest amounts are likely to occur south of the area.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
MONDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY...No Hazards.
THURSDAY...High Wind Potential.
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Isolated thunderstorms may be ongoing Monday morning across parts
of eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas. Decreasing instability
with time will negate the severe weather threat.

A strong upper level storm system is expected to move into the
central Plains Thursday. Strong south winds from the system will
raise rapid fire spread concerns.
