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...

Increasing south to southwest winds today will result in rough
chop on area lakes. Therefore, a Lake Wind Advisory has been
posted for the entire Four State region beginning at 10 am this
morning and continuing through 7 pm this evening. Look for
sustained winds near 15 to 20 mph with gusts as high as 35 mph
across some locations during the afternoon. The Lake Wind Advisory
may need to be extended into at least the evening hours tonight
across portions of Northeast Texas, Southeast Oklahoma and
portions of Southwest Arkansas.

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

An upper level trough will move out of the Four Corners region of
the country and into the Southern Plains during the day Saturday.
As this system nears the Four State Region, the possibility of
strong to severe thunderstorms will overspread at least portions
of Northeast Texas late in the day Saturday and overspread the
remainder of our region Saturday Night into early Sunday. The
timing of this next trough and its progression into the Southern
Plains will make the difference as to how much instability will be
present ahead of the trough and therefore, how much in the way of
strong to severe thunderstorms our area receives. At this time,
the best window of opportunity for our region to see strong to
severe thunderstorms appears to be late in the day Saturday
through at least Saturday Night. Locally heavy rainfall will also
accompany this next trough Saturday Night into the first half of
Sunday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Activation of emergency management personnel...amateur radio
operators...and storm spotters will not be needed through tonight.
However, continue to monitor the possibility of strong to severe
thunderstorms across portions of the Four State Region this
weekend.
