This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for a Large Part of Arkansas.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop this
afternoon. Also, a complex of thunderstorms may affect parts of
northeast Arkansas overnight. While organized severe weather is
not expected, gusty winds and heavy rainfall will accompany some
of the stronger storms.

With the ground over saturated due to the heavy rains this past
week, it will not take much runoff from additional rainfall to
quickly produce localized flash flooding. Please be sure to heed
local emergency management guidance on road closures due to high
water, and avoid flooded areas if possible.

Meanwhile, afternoon highs are forecast to top out in the upper
80s to lower 90s. The combination of these readings, along with
high humidity values, will result in afternoon heat index values
ranging from 100 to 105 degrees in many areas. If planning to be
outside for any length of time today, take frequent breaks and
stay hydrated.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday Through Friday

A weather pattern more typical of summer will develop over the region
late this weekend into next week as a large upper level ridge of
high pressure builds over the nations mid-section. Hot and humid
conditions will linger and chances of afternoon showers and
thunderstorms will be very limited through the period.

Highs are expected to range from the upper 80s to lower 90s
through mid-week before some slightly cooler air moves in. With
soil being saturated and lots of standing water, very muggy
conditions are expected to linger over the southern third of
Arkansas despite slightly drier air moving into the region. Heat
index values should remain near or below the century mark through

.Spotter Information Statement...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
