This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for south central Arkansas,
southwest Arkansas, north central Louisiana, northwest Louisiana,
southeast Oklahoma, east Texas and northeast Texas.

.DAY ONE...This afternoon and tonight.

Areas of rain with a few embedded thunderstorms will continue to
develop this afternoon and spread east northeast across much of East
Texas, North Louisiana, and Southern Arkansas, with the passage of
an upper level disturbance and cold front. While the threat for
locally strong storms is low, brief heavy rainfall will be possible,
which may result in minor flooding of low lying, poor drainage areas.
This rain will diminish from west to east this evening, thus ending
the potential flood threat.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday.

Areas of rain will increase Monday afternoon and night and continue
through late Thursday, ahead of slow moving upper level storm system
that will shift east from Northern Mexico/the Desert Southwest into
the Southern Plains and Lower Mississippi Valley. Widespread rainfall
amounts of two to four inches are expected, with isolated higher
amounts, which will result in the potential for flooding of low
lying, poor drainage areas as well as additional rises on area
waterways. In addition, the potential for light freezing rain will
exist Monday night and Tuesday morning and again Tuesday night and
Wednesday morning over portions of extreme Northeast Texas, Southeast
Oklahoma, and Southwest Arkansas. At this time, no significant ice
accumulations are expected, although icing of elevated objects such
as bridges and overpasses, trees and power lines are possible.


Spotter activation may be needed this afternoon over portions of East
Texas and North Louisiana.
