SITUATION OVERVIEW
------------------

Harvey has regenerated into at Tropical Depression this morning. TD
Harvey is expected to continue to strength into a tropical storm or
hurricane in the next couple of days. The primary impact from Harvey is
expected to be heavy rainfall and flooding, but there will still be a
threat for tropical storm to hurricane force winds and storm surge
along the coast.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS
-----------------

* FLOODING RAIN:
Prepare for locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across Southeast Texas. Potential impacts include:
    - Localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents.
      Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, and ditches may become
      swollen and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually
      vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water
      occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become
      near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief road and bridge
      closures.

* SURGE:
Prepare for life-threatening surge having possible significant
impacts across the whole Upper Texas Coast. Potential impacts in
this area include:
    - Areas of inundation with storm surge flooding accentuated by
      waves. Damage to several buildings, mainly near the coast.
    - Sections of near-shore escape routes and secondary roads become
      weakened or washed out, especially in usually vulnerable low
      spots.
    - Major beach erosion with heavy surf breaching dunes. Strong and
      numerous rip currents.
    - Moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers.
      Several small craft broken away from moorings, especially in
      unprotected anchorages.

Also, prepare for locally hazardous surge having possible limited
impacts across northern Galveston Bay and Trinity Bay.

Elsewhere across Southeast Texas, little to no impact is anticipated.

* WIND:
Prepare for dangerous wind having possible significant impacts across
the Upper Texas Coast mainly near Matagorda. Potential impacts in this
area include:
    - Some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with damage
      to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few buildings
      experiencing window, door, and garage door failures. Mobile
      homes damaged, especially if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight
      objects become dangerous projectiles.
    - Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater
      numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several
      fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban
      or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways, and access
      routes impassable.
    - Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent
      in areas with above ground lines.

* TORNADOES:
Conditions will be favorable for isolated tornadoes across much of
Southeast Texas.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS
----------------------------------

* EVACUATIONS:

WATCH/WARNING PHASE - If you are exceptionally vulnerable to wind or
water hazards from tropical systems, consider voluntary evacuation,
especially if being officially recommended. Relocate to a
predetermined shelter or safe destination.

* OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:
Now is the time to check your emergency plan and take necessary
actions to secure your home or business. Deliberate efforts should be
underway to protect life and property. Ensure that your Emergency
Supplies Kit is stocked and ready.

When making safety and preparedness decisions, do not focus on the
exact forecast track as there are inherent forecast uncertainties
which must be taken into account.

If you live in a place that is particularly vulnerable to high wind,
such as a mobile home, an upper floor of a high rise building, or on
a boat, plan to move to safe shelter. Take enough supplies for you
and your family for several days.

If you live in a place particularly vulnerable to flooding, such as
near the ocean or a large inland lake, in a low lying or poor
drainage area, in a valley or canyon, or near an already swollen
river, plan to move to safe shelter on higher ground

Always heed the advice of local officials and comply with any orders
that are issued. Do not needlessly jeopardize your life or the lives
of others.

When securing your property, outside preparations should be conducted
as soon as possible before conditions deteriorate. The onset of
strong gusty winds and heavy rain can cause certain preparedness
activities to become unsafe.

Be sure to let friends and other family members know of your
intentions and whereabouts for surviving the storm. For emergency
purposes, have someone located away from the threatened area serve as
your point of contact. Share vital contact information with others.
Keep cell phones handy and well charged.

Be a Good Samaritan and check on those who may not be fully aware of
the situation or who are unable to make personal preparations.

Visitors to the area should become familiar with nearby surroundings.
If you are a visitor, know the name of the county or parish in which
you are located and where it is relative to current watches and
warnings. If staying at a hotel, ask the management staff about their
onsite disaster plan. Listen for evacuation orders, especially
pertaining to area visitors.

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Listen for possible changes to the
forecast.

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

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

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue this morning
North of I-20, slowly shifting southward this afternoon with a
weak cold front which is already approaching I-20. Some of these
storms could produce gusty winds, frequent lightning and heavy
downpours. The slow movement of this activity will allow for some
isolated high rain totals with localized flooding possible.
Overnight, thunderstorm activity will continue sinking South of
I-20. No other hazardous weather is expected at this time.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday...

Thunderstorms will continue to shift well south of I-20 for
Thursday, but begin to lift back northward on Friday. Meanwhile,
the remnant of Harvey is out over open water in the Bay of
Campeche. Harvey still has a very high chance of regaining
tropical storm status in the Western Gulf before making landfall
on the upper Texas coastal bend. Harvey is modeled to move
northeastward into East Texas and South Louisiana this weekend.
At this time, rainfall amounts of one to four inches are expected
in our area, with much higher amounts possible near the center.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

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

This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of Southeast Texas..

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

The National Hurricane Center is continuing to monitor the remnants
of tropical system Harvey, which is currently located over the
eastern Bay of Campeche, and is expected to move northwestward
over the western Gulf of Mexico. Environmental conditions are
favorable for development, and a tropical depression or tropical
storm is very likely to form today or tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

The tropical system will move into the northwestern Gulf of
Mexico on Friday, and possibly slow down over the region. A slow
moving tropical system such as this can produce copious tropical
rainfall amounts. In the past, slow moving tropical systems have
produced amounts in excess of 20 inches leading to widespread
dangerous flooding. Tropical storm to hurricane force winds could
be possible, as well as tornadoes and storm surge. High tides
along the upper Texas Coast will likely cause impacts from
dangerous rip currents to storm surge flooding. The range of
possibilities with storm surge are varied given the highly
uncertain track of this system. Evacuations may be possible.

Marine impacts will include high winds and large dangerous seas
possible by Friday again depending on the strength and track of
the system.

Persons in Southeast Texas should be monitoring the weather
closely.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is likely at some point between Thursday night
and Monday.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight
Looking for showers and thunderstorms to develop this afternoon
continuing into this evening before dissipating. A cold front
moving through southern Arkansas is expected to move into
Louisiana making the coast around sunrise tomorrow.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday
Thursday will see a return of afternoon showers and thunderstorms.
The real change to our weather is Harvey which is in the Bay of
Campeche. The Hurricane Center expects Harvey to reform back into
a cyclone moving off to the northwest and guidance is suggesting
the storm will make landfall along the central Texas coast by
late Friday The system is expected to stall before moving towards
southeast Texas and into southern Louisiana. This is expected to
produce heavy rains over the weekend and into Monday. Rains are
expected to produce flooding in locations across the region. Five
to eight inches of rain is expected with some locations receiving
higher amounts.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for a Large Part of Arkansas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Showers and thunderstorms will continue this morning along and
north of the cold front that is currently moving south through the
state. The primary hazard will be locally heavy rainfall across
western and southwest portions of the area. This may lead to an
isolated flash flood threat. Additional thunderstorms will be
possible later this afternoon across southern sections of the
state.

Expect chances for precipitation to decrease by this afternoon
from north to south...with drier and calmer conditions expected
through the rest of the week.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday Through Tuesday

Showers and thunderstorms will return to the forecast by late in the
weekend as the front to the south of the region attempts to move
back to the north a bit. At this time...the threat of severe
weather with this system is low.

However...all eyes then focus on the remnants of Tropical Storm
Harvey...which have moved northeast off of the Yucatan peninsula
this Wednesday morning. The system is expected to make landfall
in Texas around Friday. The remnants of the storm could move in
the direction of Arkansas by early next week. If this pans
out...there could be a significant increase in heavy rainfall
potential. Arkansans should continue to monitor the latest
forecasts from the National Weather Service concerning this
potential heavy rainfall early next week.

.Spotter Information Statement...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
