A potent cold front will move across the Four State Region through this evening. Very strong southerly winds ahead of the cold front will increase instability across the region, leading to the development of a line of thunderstorms along the front. Some of the thunderstorms will be severe with large hail, damaging wind gusts, and an isolated tornado or two across the northern half of the ArkLaTex region. In addition, windy conditions will occur along, ahead, and just behind the cold front, with sustained wind speeds increasing into the 15 to 25 mph range, with gusts nearing 40 mph or higher this afternoon through this evening. A Lake Wind Advisory is therefore in effect from through 9 pm this Wednesday evening. .DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday... Very warm, humid, and unstable conditions will return to the region by Friday as a warm front lifts back north, with isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms possible along and north of this returning front Thursday night and Friday. An isolated severe thunderstorm can not be ruled out Friday with this activity. The approach of another upper level disturbance for the weekend will result in the development of a line of thunderstorms along a cold front, that will move across the Four State Region from west to east during Saturday night into Sunday morning. Once again, strong wind shear and instability may lead to some of the thunderstorms becoming strong to severe. In addition, very heavy rainfall upwards to a foot is possible across portions of central and southern Arkansas during this upcoming weekend. Accordingly, the flooding threat increases markedly this weekend and early next week as Arkansas rivers and bayous respond to the heavy rainfall. .SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT... Activation of emergency management personnel...amateur radio operators...and storm spotters will be required early this Wednesday afternoon through this Wednesday evening. $$ VIII.
