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...Today and tonight.

Showers and embedded thunderstorms will increase and spread northeast
across much of East Texas, North Louisiana, and Southern Arkansas
today, as a series of upper level disturbances eject northeast
across the area. These showers and embedded storms are expected to
gradually diminish this evening, before additional redevelopment
occurs late tonight over Southeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana, and
gradually expands northeast into Deep East Texas and Northcentral
Louisiana prior to daybreak Thursday. Given the very moist air mass
in place, locally gusty winds and heavy rainfall will be possible in
the stronger storms, with the potential for minor flooding of low
lying, poor drainage areas mainly over portions of Deep East Texas
and Northcentral Louisiana.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.

Periods of showers and embedded thunderstorms will continue across
much of the region Thursday and Friday, as multiple upper level
disturbances eject east northeast across the area ahead of a weak
upper level trough to the west. Locally gusty winds and heavy
rainfall will be possible in the stronger storms, with the potential
for minor flooding of low lying, poor drainage areas especially over
Deep East Texas and North Louisiana along and south of the
Interstate 20 corridor. Showers and thunderstorms should become more
scattered this weekend and early next week, as this weak trough
begins to lift northeast ahead of upper ridging that will begin to
build west along the Gulf coast. Hotter temperatures will return
areawide by Monday into much of next week, with heat indices nearing
or exceeding 105 degrees.


Spotter activation should not be need through tonight.
