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...This Afternoon and Tonight...

A tight pressure gradient will maintain gusty south southwest
winds over all of the Four State Region this afternoon, resulting
in winds ranging from 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph at times.
Thus, a Lake Wind Advisory remains in effect for all of the region
this afternoon. Winds will remain gusty tonight across much of
Northeast Texas, but will diminish by daybreak Wednesday as a cold
front enters the area from the northwest.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday...

Showers and thunderstorms will increase from the west over
Southeast Oklahoma and East Texas Saturday, and across the
remainder of the region Saturday night, ahead of a strong upper
level storm system that will move into the Southern Plains. The
extent of instability remains in question though as the warmer and
more unstable air will be delayed in returning back north across
the region until Saturday afternoon and evening. However, there is
a potential for strong to severe thunderstorms over at least
portions of East Texas Saturday afternoon and night. Heavy
rainfall will also be possible areawide as this storm system
shifts east through the region, with the more significant rains
diminishing over Southwest Arkansas and North Louisiana by Sunday


Activation of emergency management personnel...amateur radio
operators...and storm spotters will not be needed through tonight.
