1119 AM CDT Wed Apr 26 2017

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.

Strong to severe storms are forecast today. The chance for
thunderstorms will increase throughout the day and part of
tonight, as an upper storm system and cold front move through the
region. A line of strong to severe thunderstorms is expected to
form this afternoon to evening, and move through Arkansas. Damaging
winds and large hail will be the main concerns, but tornadoes
will be possible with any discrete storms that do develop out
ahead of the line of storms, as well as along the leading edge of
the main thunderstorm line. The Storm Prediction Center has placed
much of Arkansas in an Enhanced Risk area, while parts of southern
Arkansas are in a Moderate Risk. Area residents should monitor the
weather closely today. Also, winds will be elevated today and a
lake wind advisory will be in effect.

The potential for severe weather returns again by Friday, as a
warm front lifts northward across Arkansas. Large hail and
damaging winds will once again be the main threats. The potential
for heavy rainfall will also exist, increasing the concern for
flash flooding and river flooding.

The unsettled weather pattern will continue into the weekend. Yet
another storm could produce additional severe weather over the Mid-
South as a new cold front is forecast to move through the region.
Due to forecast uncertainties with this system, please continue to
monitor the latest outlooks from your NWS office.

.Spotter Information Statement...

Spotter activation may be needed today, Friday and Saturday. Please
