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...

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.
