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

.DAY ONE...Tonight.

THUNDERSTORMS WITH DANGEROUS LIGHTNING.
RISK...Elevated.
AREA...Northeast Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...this evening.

DISCUSSION...

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will move south out of southeast
Kansas into portions of northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas
overnight. A few of these storms could be strong with gusty winds
and small hail. Thunderstorm activity should begin to weaken after
midnight with only a few lingering showers.

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

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

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Thunderstorm chances will increase late in the week and into the
early part of the weekend as a frontal boundary approaches and
finally moves through portions of eastern Oklahoma and western
Arkansas. Some severe weather potential will exist, especially on
Friday, as increasing moisture leads to a corresponding increase
in the instability. Locally heavy rain may also occur late Friday
and into Saturday as the front slows and eventually stalls.
Thunderstorm potential will decrease toward the latter part of the
weekend.
