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

.DAY ONE...This Evening and Tonight.

TORNADO.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Portions of northeast Oklahoma mainly northwest of
           I-44.
ONSET...Ongoing.

SEVERE THUNDERSTORM.
RISK...Elevated.
AREA...Eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing...although best chances will be late evening
    and overnight.

FLASH FLOOD.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas.
ONSET...This evening and overnight.

HEAVY RAIN.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas.
ONSET...This evening and overnight.

DISCUSSION...

Isolated thunderstorms have developed across portions of north
central Oklahoma late this afternoon. These storms may eventually
drift into portions of northeast Oklahoma mainly northwest of
Interstate 44. These storms will have the potential to be severe
with strong gusty winds and large hail the main concern. Any
discrete cells will pose a limited risk of tornadoes through the
evening hours, mainly near the Oklahoma...Kansas state line. In
addition, very heavy rainfall will be likely in the stronger
thunderstorms and with the slow storm motions expected, localized
flash flooding will be possible.

Thunderstorms across Kansas and other storms well to our west
should eventually develop into multiple clusters of storms and
move into eastern Oklahoma mainly after midnight.  These storms are
expected to sweep east into northwest Arkansas late tonight. Strong
damaging winds and heavy rainfall will be the main concern, with the
greatest threat for severe weather across northeast Oklahoma.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Activation of the Regional Spotter Network Likely.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday.
WEDNESDAY...Severe Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
THURSDAY...No Hazards.
FRIDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...High Wind Potential...Dangerous
Heat Potential.
SATURDAY...Severe Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
SUNDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
MONDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...

Thunderstorms could still be ongoing across portions of far eastern
Oklahoma and western Arkansas Wednesday morning. Additional
thunderstorms will develop Wednesday afternoon and continue into
Wednesday night in the vicinity of a cold front across southeast
Oklahoma and into northwest Arkansas. These storms will have the
potential to be strong to severe with strong gusty winds, large hail
and heavy rainfall possible.

The next significant chance of showers and thunderstorms will
come over the weekend and into early next week as a slow moving
storm system affects the region. Some of these storms could
be severe. Heavy rainfall will also be possible.
