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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Showers and thunderstorms chances will increase today ahead of a
cold front that will move across Arkansas. Some strong and severe
storms will be possible, primarily over central and eastern

primary concerns, although isolated tornadoes cannot be rule out.
The severe weather threat will diminish later this evening as the
front moves east of Arkansas.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday Through Friday

The threat for hazardous weather will remain low through Sunday
night. However...showers and some thunderstorms will return to the
forecast Monday into Tuesday. There could be some potential for
strong to severe thunderstorms during this time frame...but
significant uncertainty exists on the overall track of this storm
system. As a result...refer to the forecasts in the coming days for
any changes to the potential for severe weather early next week. The
threat for seeing hazardous weather will then become low by the
middle of next week.

.Spotter Information Statement...

Spotter activation may be needed this afternoon and early this

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of the Missouri
Ozarks and extreme southeast Kansas.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

  Limited hail risk.
  Limited thunderstorm wind damage risk.
  Elevated lightning risk.
  Limited non thunderstorm wind risk.
  Significant fire weather risk.

DISCUSSION...

Showers and thunderstorms will continue to move east across the

to severe thunderstorms capable of producing large hail up to the
size of quarters and damaging wind gusts up to 60 mph along and
east of Highway 63.

Non thunderstorm wind gusts of 40 to 45 mph will occur into early
this evening as strong low pressure moves from the central Plains
to the Midwest. Drier air filtering into southeast Kansas and
western Missouri will also lead to a heightened fire weather risk
this afternoon.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.

Rain enters the region late Monday into Tuesday, with a concern
for minor flooding.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation may be needed into early this evening along

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

SIGNIFICANT WINDS.
RISK...Elevated.
AREA...Portions of northern Oklahoma.
ONSET...Ongoing.

FIRE WEATHER DANGER.
RISK...Elevated.
AREA...Northeast Oklahoma.
ONSET...Ongoing.


DISCUSSION...
West winds will continue in the 20 to 30 mph range with gusts near
45 mph through sunset. The strong winds are in the wake of a
Pacific front and associated with a strong low pressure center
over the Central Plains.

Dry air behind the front coupled with afternoon temperatures near
70 degrees has resulted in relative humidity values in the 25 to
35 percent range. The dry atmospheric conditions will allow fine
fuels to also dry and combined with the strong west winds create
an elevated fire weather threat through this evening.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Spotter Activation Not Expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.
SUNDAY...No Hazards.
MONDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
TUESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
WEDNESDAY...No Hazards.
THURSDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
FRIDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
A storm system will move across the southern Great Plains early
next week bringing widespread rainfall to eastern Oklahoma and
western Arkansas. The progressive nature of the system will limit
the heavy rainfall threat but some localized downpours will be
possible. Instability will also be limited with the system
allowing for a few thunderstorms during this time. Another storm
system will approach the area Thursday bringing another round of
showers and storms to the region before a strong cold front
arrives in time for the weekend.
