This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of South Central
and Southwest Arkansas, North Central and Northwest Louisiana,
Southeast Oklahoma, and East and Northeast Texas.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight...

Light rain with a few thunderstorms continued to impact locations
near and North of the Interstate 30 corridor and a shift to the
East during the day and overnight reaching east Texas, Northwest
Louisiana, and Southwest Arkansas. No hazardous weather is
expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday...

Persistent southwest flow aloft will remain over the Four-State
Region providing additional moisture and disturbances, resulting
in an unsettled and wet weather pattern through the week and
into the weekend. Moderate to heavy rainfall is expected by
Tuesday and Wednesday as a cold front becomes a focus for
thunderstorms. As soils become saturated the potential for
flash flooding and flooding becomes moderate for the Northwest
sections of the forecast area. Later in the week, showers and
isolated thunderstorms will remain possible and a potential for
flash flooding and flooding will shift into South Central
Arkansas, Northwest and North Central Louisiana, and East
Texas. Confidence is low for severe weather at this time.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Activation of emergency management personnel...amateur radio
operators...and storm spotters will not be needed through tonight.
