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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

THUNDERSTORMS WITH DANGEROUS LIGHTNING.
RISK...Elevated.
AREA...Southeastern Oklahoma and Northwestern Arkansas.
ONSET...After 1pm.

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

DISCUSSION...
Continued unseasonably hot temperatures combined with high humidity
will result in heat indices near 100 degrees across much of eastern
Oklahoma and west central Arkansas this afternoon. An increase in
moisture should also lead to a corresponding increase in thunderstorm
coverage this afternoon across southeastern Oklahoma into
northwestern Arkansas. Severe weather is not expected with any of this
activity but wind gusts to 45 mph will be possible with the
strongest storms. Much of this activity will dissipate around sunset
this evening.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday.
TUESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
WEDNESDAY...Severe Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
THURSDAY through Saturday...Thunderstorm Potential.
SUNDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Deeper moisture will continue to spread into the region from the
south this week as a slow-moving upper level disturbance approaches
from the northwest and a cold front from moves into the area from the
north. Scattered thunderstorms on Tuesday will likely become more
widespread across the area for the remainder of the week. A low
risk of severe weather will exist during the mid-week into the
weekend with the highest threat for large hail and damaging wind
currently expected Wednesday afternoon and evening. Some areas may
also receive locally heavy rainfall during that period.
