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...

Scattered thunderstorms are expected this afternoon through this
evening with increasing northwest flow aloft. At the surface, a
a weak frontal boundary will also be advancing into the region.
Any storms that develop will have the potential to produce some
higher wind speeds, along with potentially strong and damaging
wind gusts in the more intense storms. This threat appears to be
highest across the northwest half of our forecast area where a
marginal risk of severe weather is highlighted through tonight.

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

Thunderstorm coverage will gradually decrease through late week
into the weekend as an upper level ridge of high pressure shifts
back into the region. As a result, rising temperatures with near
record or even some record breaking heat will be possible each
afternoon as highs reach into the lower to mid 90s over much of
the region through the weekend. This will likely result in heat
index values approaching the century mark, especially over the
southern sections of east Texas and north Louisiana. Slightly
lower temperatures will return early next week with scattered
thunderstorms returning to the forecast. However, no organized
threat of severe weather is expected at this time.


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