This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for southern Arkansas, for
northern Louisiana, for eastern Texas and southeast Oklahoma.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight...

Heat index values near 105 are expected again this afternoon, so
take precautions to prevent heat related injuries. At the same
time, isolated to perhaps scattered showers and thunderstorms
will be developing this mid to late afternoon. Some of these
storms could be strong as the rain cooled air falls into hot air
at the ground, producing gusty winds, dangerous cloud to ground
lightning and briefly heavy downpours. Overnight, new thunderstorm
activity from the North along a cold front may move into the area
by daybreak. Otherwise, no other hazardous weather is expected at
this time.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday...

Thunderstorms will become more widespread into midweek as the cold
front slowly moves South of I-20 briefly and then lifts back
northward. In addition, the remnant of tropical depression Harvey
is over the Yucatan peninsula now and will move across the
Western Gulf of Mexico regaining storm status and then making
landfall on the Texas coastal bend. From there it is Northeastward
into the ArkLaTex early this weekend. Stay abreast of this
possible flooding threat during this week as storm track
information from NHC monitors this disturbance.


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