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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

DANGEROUS HEAT.
RISK...Limited.
 AREA...Eastern Oklahoma and West Central Arkansas.
 ONSET...Ongoing.

DISCUSSION...

Heat indices across the region range from 95 to 100 degrees in
most places, except in the lower Arkansas River valley, where
values are in the low 100s. Conditions will improve by sunset this
evening.

An isolated thunderstorm is possible to the southeast of I-44. If
one develops, lightning would be the main threat thru sunset.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Spotter Activation Not Expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday.
TUESDAY...No Hazards.
WEDNESDAY...Dangerous Heat Potential.
THURSDAY thru SATURDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
SUNDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...

The unseasonably hot and humid weather will persist for much of
the upcoming week as a ridge of high pressure remains over the
area. Heat indices each afternoon will range from 95 to 103
degrees across much of eastern Oklahoma and west central
Arkansas.

Thunderstorm chances return Thursday and continue through the
weekend as the remnant tropical moisture from a potential Gulf
tropical system lifts northward into the area. Some interaction
with an approaching front is possible by late in the weekend,
which could focus heavy rain potential across northeast Oklahoma
and northwest Arkansas.
