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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Gusty north to northwest winds are expected today, and as a
result, caution should be used on area waterways. Otherwise, no
hazardous weather is expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday Through Thursday

Thunderstorms will be possible as early as Saturday, with the
potential of a few strong storms across western Arkansas Saturday
afternoon and evening. Scattered to numerous showers and
thunderstorms will remain in the forecast, especially from
Tuesday through Thursday. Rain chances will be highest across the
northwest half of Arkansas.

The main concern across the northern and western counties will be
areas of heavy rain. Several inches of rain will be possible in
places, and this could cause flooding and elevate river levels.

While an outbreak of severe weather is not expected, some storms
could become severe across the north and west and produce damaging
winds and large hail.

Where heavy rain sets up and severe weather occurs will depend on
the placement and timing of an incoming cold front. The front will
be the focus for the expected active weather pattern. Refer to the
latest forecasts for further updates.

.Spotter Information Statement...

Spotter activation will not be needed at this time.

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

AREA...Northeast Oklahoma and far Northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...After Midnight.

An upper level wave moving into the central plains will push a
cold front towards eastern Oklahoma late tonight. Scattered
thunderstorms will be possible ahead of the boundary, mainly
across northeast Oklahoma after midnight. Severe weather is not

Spotter Activation Not Expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.
SATURDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...High Wind Potential.
SUNDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
MONDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY...Severe Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain
THURSDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.

A strong upper level wave will develop by early next week across
the desert southwest. Moisture will deepen across the plains ahead
of this system, and a frontal boundary moving into the region
will likely stall across the area. This will set the stage for
multiple rounds of showers and storms beginning Monday night.
Severe potential will transition to a heavy rain and potential flood
threat as coverage increases Tuesday and continues into
Wednesday. The heavier rainfall axis will begin to shift into
southeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas Wednesday as the upper
trough approaches and helps push the front further into the
region. Another upper wave moving through late in the work week
will result in a continued threat for heavy rainfall and potential
flooding as the moist airmass remains in place. contains additional information.
