This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of south central
Arkansas, southwest Arkansas, north central Louisiana, northwest
Louisiana, southeast Oklahoma, east Texas and northeast Texas.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight...

Showers and thunderstorms will increase across the region today,
ahead of an upper level disturbance that will move through the
area. Isolated strong to severe thunderstorms can not be ruled
out, with damaging winds, hail, and brief heavy rainfall possible.
These showers and thunderstorms will diminish this evening with
the departure of this disturbance.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday...

Showers and thunderstorms will again return to the region Tuesday
in advance of an upper level storm system that will progress
through the Southern Rockies and into West Texas and the Oklahoma
Panhandle by midweek. The threat for locally heavy rainfall and
flash flooding will increase Tuesday night and Wednesday across
East Texas, Southeast Oklahoma, portions of Southwest Arkansas and
possibly Western Louisiana, as a complex of showers and
thunderstorms moves into these areas. Some of these storms may
also become severe during the late afternoon through the evening
hours Tuesday, before the heavy rain and flash flood threat
increases across these areas Tuesday night and Wednesday.
Widespread rainfall amounts of three to five inches are expected
this week across these areas this week, with isolated higher
amounts in excess of eight inches possible, especially over East
Texas. This rainfall will result in new rises and possible
flooding on area creeks and bayous, rivers and lakes. This
unsettled weather pattern will continue Thursday and Friday,
before gradually diminishing from east to west this weekend.


Activation of emergency management personnel...amateur radio
operators...and storm spotters may be needed today across portions
of the region.
