This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for a Large Part of Arkansas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Humidity this afternoon is expected to drop into the mid 20th to
lower 30th percentile across the state. With continued drying,
the possibility of wildfires is increasing, especially over the
northeast and north central parts of the state. Otherwise,
hazardous weather is not expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday Through Sunday

Showers and isolated thunderstorms are expected to develop by mid to
late week with the approach of a storm system and associated cold
front. This frontal boundary will help to trigger showers and
isolated thunderstorms through the weekend over much of Arkansas.
Heavy rainfall training over the same locations, near the AR/MO
border, could create brief flash flooding concerns. Otherwise,
hazardous weather is not expected at this time.

.Spotter Information Statement...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
