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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

SEVERE THUNDERSTORM.
RISK...Limited.
    AREA...Northwest of Interstate 44.
    ONSET...After Midnight.

DISCUSSION...
There is a limited risk of severe storms to the west and north of
Tulsa tonight. Damaging winds and large hail would be the main
threats.

A complex of storms is expected to organize to the west this
afternoon and evening. There is a low chance that some of this
activity may hold together long enough to impact parts of
northeast Oklahoma tonight as the complex moves to the northeast.
Any storms that move this far east will be in a weakening state,
thus limiting the threat of severe weather.

An isolated shower or storm may also occur this afternoon along
the Kansas border in northeast Oklahoma, and over southeast
Oklahoma, but are not expected to be severe.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Local Spotter Activation May Be Needed.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.
SATURDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...High Wind Potential.
SUNDAY through THURSDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Low thunderstorm chances continue thru the weekend across
northeast Oklahoma as a weak front approaches and then eventually
stalls over the region. The greatest severe risk is expected to
stay to the north and west of the region.

Isolated to scattered storms can be expected mainly during the
daytime hours across the region next week. Weak flow aloft will
mitigate the potential for organized severe weather.
