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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

AREA...Southeast Oklahoma and West Central Arkansas.
ONSET...This Afternoon.

Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will remain possible
over Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas this morning as a
surface low pressure lifts north of the region. Additional shower
and thunderstorm chances will become possible this afternoon and
evening in response to an upper level low pressure system dropping
southward into the region. The greater thunderstorm potential
this afternoon and evening looks to be across Southeast Oklahoma
into West Central Arkansas. Marginal instability over the region
should limit overall severe potentials... and thus severe weather
is not anticipated today.

Spotter Activation Not Expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday.
WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.

The upper level low pressure system is forecast to stall across
the region through Thursday before exiting ahead of a cold front
Friday. This will allow for continued multiple rounds of shower
and thunderstorm chances through the end of the work week and
finally tapering off behind the cold front. Locally heavy rainfall
will be possible through the week. Once the low pressure system
exits the region...a ridge of high pressure looks to set up over
the weekend into the start of next week which will allow for
warming temperatures and drier conditions. contains additional information.
