...PATCHY DENSE SEA FOG POSSIBLE OVERNIGHT OVER THE BAYS AND

While shelf water temperatures have increased over the last few
days, in some locations shelf water temperatures are still cooler
than some of the projected dew points. As a result, although the
concern for areas of dense sea fog has greatly diminished, sea fog
is still possible tonight. However, any sea fog is expected to
largely produce visibilities of more than 2 miles, especially
since winds will be elevated tonight and not allow air parcels to
reach saturation as readily.

Mariners should remain careful in areas of reduced visibility by
reducing speeds.

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

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

Scattered showers and thunderstorms continued to impact mainly
along and north of the Interstate 30 corridor this morning. This
activity is expected to shift eastward throughout the day, with
moderate to heavy rainfall commencing to affect the region by
this evening and into tonight as an impending cold frontal
provides a liner focus. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect across
portions of east Texas, northeast Texas, southeast Oklahoma and
southwest Arkansas this evening through tomorrow night. Rainfall
amounts of three to six inches will be possible. Remember turn
around don`t drown.

Furthermore, breezy south wind speeds of 15 to 20 mph with gusts
of around 30 mph will occur today through early this evening
across the entire Four-State Region. A Lake Wind Advisory is
therefore in effect through early evening.

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

Persistent southwest flow aloft and south winds at the surface will
remain over the Four-State Region providing ensuing moisture and
disturbances resulting in an unsettled and wet weather pattern
through the week and into the weekend. Moderate to heavy rainfall
will continue into Wednesday as the cold front remains a focus for
thunderstorms. As soils become saturated, the potential for
flooding and flash flooding becomes moderate for the northwest
sections of the forecast area. Later in the week, moderate to
heavy rainfall will be shifting eastward across the region thus
maintaining the potential for flooding. Confidence is low for
severe weather at this time.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

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