523 AM CDT Thu May 25 2017

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of the Missouri
Ozarks and extreme southeast Kansas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

  Limited Fog risk.

DISCUSSION...

Areas of dense fog will be possible early today through 9 am,
especially near fog prone areas in low terrain and near lakes.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.

Unsettled conditions will develop over the area Friday and
Saturday. Warming mid level temperatures will develop a thermal
cap in the atmosphere on Friday which will likely keep most
thunderstorm activity from developing until at least Friday night.
The overall best chance of strong to severe storms will occur
from Saturday afternoon into Saturday night as the cap weakens and
very strong instability develops ahead of a cold front which will
move through Saturday night. Potentially very large hail,
damaging winds, and tornadoes will be possible.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight.

500 AM CDT Thu May 25 2017

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...Friday Through Wednesday

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.

By Saturday evening into the early morning hours on Sunday...the
potential for seeing more organized thunderstorms will increase as a
cold front drops south into 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 southern sections of the state as the
cold front pushes through this region of Arkansas. A few 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 heading into the holiday weekend.

No hazardous weather is expected through Tonight.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Spotter Activation Not Expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
FRIDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
SATURDAY...Severe Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
SUNDAY and MONDAY...No Hazards.
TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Thunderstorms will be possible Friday night across portions of northeast Oklahoma
and northwest Arkansas as a cold front moves into the region. Some of these storms
will have the potential to become strong to severe with large hail and damaging winds
the main concern.

A more significant potential for severe weather will exist Saturday afternoon and
evening as the airmass across the region becomes extremely unstable and the frontal
boundary lingers across the area. Thunderstorms are expected to develop late Saturday
afternoon and evening in the vicinity of the frontal boundary as an upper level disturbance
approaches the region. Any thunderstorm that develops will have the potential to become
severe rapidly. Very large hail and significant damaging winds will be the main concern.
Tornadoes will also be possible. Locally heavy rainfall will also be possible which
could lead to flooding of low lying areas. The thunderstorms will come to an end by
Sunday morning as the cold front exits the area to the south and east.

The next chance of showers and thunderstorms will be Tuesday into Wednesday as the next
storm system affects the area.
