1142 AM CDT Thu Jun 22 2017

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of south central
Arkansas, southwest Arkansas, north central Louisiana, northwest
Louisiana, east Texas and northeast Texas.

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

The remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy will move North across
extreme Eastern Texas and Western Louisiana today, before a
gradual shift to the Northeast across Northwest Louisiana and
Southern Arkansas tonight through early Friday morning. Periods of
locally heavy rainfall near the center of circulation can be
expected across all these areas. Widespread heavy rainfall of two
to four inches is expected through Friday morning, with isolated
higher amounts of five inches possible mainly across portions of
extreme Eastern Texas, Northwest Louisiana, and South Central
Arkansas. This amount of rainfall will produce flooding of streets
and low lying and poor drainage areas and can lead to Flash
Flooding with successive downpours. For today there will be a
tight pressure gradient associated with Cindy that will produce
strong and gusty winds of 15 to 25 MPH with higher gusts to near
or higher than 30 MPH, that can lead to falling trees as the
grounds soak. With landfalling tropical systems there is a threat
for rotation in the spiral bands to the East and Northeast of the
track resulting in weak tornadoes.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday...

Additional heavy rainfall will be possible through midday Friday
before tapering off briefly as the remnants of Cindy shift to the
East. However a cold front shifting South to bring a return of
showers and thunderstorms, some of which may contain locally heavy
rainfall for Friday night into early Saturday. For the rest of
the weekend and through the next work week there will be a
diminished chance of showers and thunderstorms with lesser
amounts expected.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
