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...Eastern Oklahoma and Western Arkansas.
ONSET...Late this morning through early afternoon.

HEAVY RAIN.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Far eastern Oklahoma and Western Arkansas.
ONSET...This afternoon.

DISCUSSION...
A very muggy and unstable air mass remains across the area today
which will result in scattered showers and thunderstorms by late
morning into the afternoon. Storms could form anywhere across
eastern Oklahoma or western Arkansas given the uncapped
environment. Although winds aloft are weak, there is a low risk of
pulse severe storms. The storms will be rather short lived but
will bring the risk of hail and isolated damaging wind gusts as
they collapse. Storms will tend to be slow moving, and some will contain
locally heavy rain. This could lead to isolated flash flooding in
areas where storms merge together.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.
THURSDAY through TUESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.


EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
There will be a limited threat for thunderstorms for the next
several days. Storms will tend to form at peak heating in the
afternoon and diminish by sunset. There is a slightly better
chance for strong or severe storms on Friday, if storms develop
to our west and move in overnight Friday night into Saturday
morning. The main threat with these would be damaging winds.
