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

.DAY ONE...Tonight.

AREA...Much of eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...After 1 AM.

Isolated severe storms are approaching northeast Oklahoma early
Monday morning.  These storms will continue eastward posing
a risk of large hail through the early morning hours.

A second region of storm development early Monday morning is
possible further south over south central into southeast Oklahoma.
Conditions over this region are more supportive of severe weather
potential.  Should storms develop over this region they may
obtain supercell characteristics as they move eastward.  Large
hail and locally damaging winds will be possible.  The storms
would move into a less favorable environment over western
Arkansas but likely maintain some risk of severe weather.
The storms, should they develop, would likely weaken and
move further east by sunrise Monday.

Local Spotter Activation May Be Needed.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday.
MONDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Fire Weather Potential...High Wind Potential.
TUESDAY through THURSDAY...No Hazards.
FRIDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Very High Fire Weather Potential...High Wind Potential.
SATURDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.

Strong west to northwest winds are expected on Monday behind the
departing storm system. These winds will promote rapid wildfire
spread conditions across the region especially for areas along and
south of Interstate 40. The risk will be lessened in areas which
receive a good amount of rain this afternoon and evening.
Temperatures will gradually trend warmer through the upcoming
week. Above normal temperatures by late week along with increasing
southerly winds will raise fire weather concerns for both
Thursday and Friday. The next chance of thunderstorms arrives next
weekend. contains additional information.
