This Outlook is for Northwest and West Central Arkansas as well as
much of Eastern Oklahoma.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

DISCUSSION...
No hazardous weather is expected through tonight.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Spotter Activation Not Needed through Tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
THURSDAY...High Wind Potential. Fire Weather Potential.
FRIDAY...Severe Thunderstorm Potential...High Wind Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
SATURDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
SUNDAY...Severe Thunderstorm Potential.
MONDAY through TUESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
After a cool Wednesday, clouds will clear out on Thursday and
winds will become southerly again. A storm system will approach
the Southern Plains from the West Coast, and winds will increase
on Thursday in response to the deepening surface low pressure.
Sustained winds of 15 to 25 miles per hour with higher gusts will
be common on Thursday with temperatures climbing into the 70s.
This will raise fire danger yet again across the area given the
ongoing dry conditions.

A dryline will develop by Thursday afternoon with a chance of
severe thunderstorms across western portions of Kansas and the
panhandles of Oklahoma and Texas. This dryline will mix east on
Friday, along with an upper storm system which should force a line
of strong to severe thunderstorms across eastern Oklahoma and
western Arkansas by Friday morning and afternoon. The main threats
with the convective line will be damaging winds, although the wind
profiles will support embedded supercells, which would raise the
potential for large hail and isolated rotating storms.

The extended period looks active with a chance for thunderstorms
from Saturday through Tuesday.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PLANNING STATEMENT...
It is becoming increasingly likely that a few severe storms will
develop on Friday. Emergency managers and others with severe
weather interests should follow the latest forecasts closely and
be prepared for the potential for severe weather on Friday.
