Washington OK-Washington AR-
100 PM CDT Wed Apr 26 2017

This Outlook is for Northwest and West Central Arkansas as well as
much of Eastern Oklahoma.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

THUNDERSTORMS WITH DANGEROUS LIGHTNING.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Western Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing.

FLASH FLOOD.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Far Eastern Oklahoma and Western Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing.

DISCUSSION...
Lingering areas of showers and a few isolated thunderstorms
will persist into the afternoon across western Arkansas.
Severe weather is not expected.

Evening and overnight rainfall resulted in areas of flooding
especially across northwest Arkansas. The threat of additional
heavy rainfall has ended...but periods of light to moderate rain
will continue into the afternoon.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Activation of the Spotter Network is not expected. Please relay
any reports of storm damage or flooding to the NWS in Tulsa.

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

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
There may be a brief lull in thunderstorms late Wednesday into
Thursday between weather systems. Additional storms may form
Thursday evening as the next low pressure system approaches.

On Friday, a warm front will move north across central and
eastern Oklahoma and be a focus for strong to severe
thunderstorms. The airmass may remain capped much of the afternoon
on Friday, with the better chance for storms developing by late
afternoon into early evening. Strong deep layer wind shear and
moderate instability will support supercells capable of large
hail, damaging winds and tornadoes across much of the Southern
Plains. Eventually, these late afternoon and evening storms will
form a large complex of storms, with the potential for heavy rain.

Flooding is becoming an increasing concern for this weekend`s
upcoming storm system. It now appears that 6-7 inches of rain is
possible for portions of southeast Oklahoma into western Arkansas
with isolated higher amounts. This will cause river flooding as
well as flash flooding.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PLANNING STATEMENT...
Continue to follow the latest updates regarding the expected
hazardous weather this week.

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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

  Limited Flooding risk.
  Elevated Lightning risk.

DISCUSSION...

Areas of showers and isolated embedded thunderstorms will
continue to track east through the Missouri Ozarks this afternoon
spreading out of the area from west to east later this afternoon
into this evening. Cloud to ground lightning strikes will be the
main hazard with any of the storms. Localized flooding of small
creeks and a few low water crossings will also remain possible
this afternoon across south central Missouri from the heavy
rainfall that occurred earlier today.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.

Confidence then continues to increase in the potential for
widespread heavy rainfall from later Friday into the weekend.
With soils nearly saturated, excessive runoff will be likely and
will lead to an increasing risk for flooding. At this time, it
appears that the heaviest axis of rainfall may occur from
northwestern Arkansas through southern Missouri where 3 to 6
inches of rainfall is forecast with locally higher amounts
possible. Widespread flooding will become possible beneath this
axis of heaviest rainfall.

Additionally, there will be a risk for strong to severe
thunderstorms from Friday into Saturday across southern Missouri.

Those with outdoor and travel plans for this upcoming weekend
should pay close attention to the forecast as there is the
potential for multiple weather hazards, including the potential
for widespread flooding.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

  Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight.

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.

At 12:46 PM, National Weather Service doppler radars continued to
detect scattered rain showers affecting portions of eastern
Oklahoma and western Arkansas, mainly along and east of a line
from Lenapah to Okemah. The stronger storms had shifted east into
Arkansas, leaving mainly light to moderate rain across our
forecast area. All this activity was moving toward the northeast,
around 45 miles per hour.

Through 2:00 PM, Scattered rain showers with possible isolated
embedded thunderstorms will continue to affect eastern Oklahoma
and western Arkansas. The severe storm threat has diminished,
however continued rain will likely cause flooding issues,
especially across northwest Arkansas.
