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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

No hazardous weather is expected through tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Severe thunderstorms will become possible Saturday afternoon and
early evening across the northern/northwestern half of Arkansas.
While uncertainty exists on whether storms can form and become
mature...any storm that does form will have the potential to produce
very large hail and damaging winds. These storms may also be capable
of producing a tornado or two.

As time goes on late Saturday evening into the early morning hours
on Sunday...the potential for seeing more organized thunderstorms
will increase as a cold front drops south towards the state. These
thunderstorms could also become severe...with damaging winds
possible with the strongest storms as this activity looks to form
into a larger...more organized line or complex. Large hail and a few
brief tornadoes will also be possible as this line or complex moves
south across northern Arkansas. Some locally heavy rain may also be
seen...resulting in an isolated flash flood threat.

By Sunday morning...the threat for seeing severe weather will have
decreased...but the cold front will still be dropping south across
the state. Additional thunderstorms will be possible Sunday
afternoon and evening across the southern/southeastern half of the
state as the cold front pushes through this region of Arkansas.
Additional strong to severe thunderstorms may again be possible
during this period.

Calmer and drier conditions will be seen for Monday into Tuesday.
The threat for hazardous weather will then become low.

.Spotter Information Statement...

Spotter activation is not anticipated at this time. However, please
monitor forecast trends over the holiday weekend.
