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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

SEVERE THUNDERSTORM.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Eastern Oklahoma and Western Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing.

DISCUSSION...
Showers and thunderstorms continue early this morning across
eastern Oklahoma. The main threat with these storms will be strong
or damaging wind gusts. The severe potential for this afternoon
may be more limited in areas that had rain overnight. The higher
severe potential will likely be across far southeast Oklahoma. An
outflow boundary extended from roughly Gainesville to Atoka, and
this could serve as a focus for storm development later today.
Otherwise, main hazards with ongoing storms will be brief heavy
rainfall, gusty winds and lightning. Storm chances will diminish
by this afternoon through tonight.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Local Spotter Activation May Be Needed.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday.
MONDAY through SATURDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Cold front finally will move south of the area by Monday, bringing
some cooler and more stable air to the region. Southwest flow
aloft will continue through at least mid week, so any low
amplitude impulse could generate some showers and storms. However
the overall severe potential will remain low for the next several
days.
