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

.DAY ONE...This afternoon and Tonight.

SEVERE THUNDERSTORM.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Portion of Northeast Oklahoma and Southeast
    Oklahoma.
ONSET...Late afternoon.

DANGEROUS HEAT.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Mainly northeast Oklahoma.
ONSET...Ongoing.

DISCUSSION...
The remnants of a thunderstorm complex have exited west-central
Arkansas and extreme southeast Oklahoma early this afternoon.
This complex has left an outflow boundary in its wake that
could trigger isolated severe thunderstorms this afternoon
across portions of northeast and southeast Oklahoma. Strong
gusty winds would be the main concern.

Additional thunderstorms could move into the area later this
evening as thunderstorms develop across western Oklahoma
and approach the region. These storms could also be strong
to severe.

In addition to the thunderstorm threats, the combination of the
above normal temperatures and increasing humidity will lead to
triple digit heat index values for portions of northeast Oklahoma
this afternoon.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY...Dangerous Heat Potential.
SUNDAY...No Hazards.
MONDAY AND TUESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
WEDNESDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
An upper level ridge will build into the area for the weekend,
leading to continued hot and humid conditions, as well as reduced
thunderstorm chances. Portions of western Arkansas may see
isolated to scattered afternoon thunderstorms on Friday, but most
spots should remain dry. Triple digit heat index values will be
possible across both eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas into
the weekend, with heat stress impacts likely.

Thunderstorm chances and heavy rain potential will increase Monday
and into Tuesday as the remains of Tropical Storm Cristobal move
across the area. Continue to monitor future forecasts and
statements for additional details, as the location of greatest
heavy rain impacts will depend on the eventual track of the
remnants.
