...Severe Storms Possible Late Tonight...

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

TORNADO.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Northeast Oklahoma.
ONSET...After Midnight.

SEVERE THUNDERSTORM.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...After Midnight.

SIGNIFICANT WINDS.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...This Afternoon.

DISCUSSION...
Gusty south winds will develop this afternoon and continue into
tonight. Thunderstorm chances will ramp up after midnight tonight
as a Pacific cold front approaches from the west. Damaging winds
will be the main concern, with a lesser chance for large hail.
There is also a very low threat for a tornado or two in northeast
Oklahoma late tonight.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Local Spotter Activation May Be Needed.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday.
TUESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...High Wind Potential.
WEDNESDAY...No Hazards.
THURSDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...High Wind Potential.
FRIDAY and SATURDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
SUNDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Thunderstorms will end from west to east Tuesday as the cold
front moves east of the area by afternoon. Fire weather concerns
will ramp up behind the front Tuesday afternoon as dry air surges
into the region on gusty southwest winds. The greatest concern
will be to the north and west of Tulsa where the spring green-up
has been less significant.

Thunderstorm chances will return Thursday and Thursday night as
another cold front moves across the area, and a few of these
storms may be severe. The front will stall just south of the Red
River Friday and Saturday, with showers and a few thunderstorms
remaining possible to the north of the boundary.
