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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

AREA...Far Southeast Oklahoma.
ONSET...After Midnight.

AREA...Most of Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...Late Morning.

A limited risk of rapid fire spread will develop late morning
and continue through this afternoon across most of eastern
Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas due to continued gusty winds and
well above normal afternoon temperatures.

A small chance of thunderstorms will exist after midnight across
far southeast Oklahoma as a cold front briefly stalls just south
of the Red River. Severe weather is unlikely.

Spotter Activation Not Expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.
SUNDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
MONDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Very High Fire Weather Potential...
         High Wind Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
TUESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.

Shower and thunderstorm potential will increase through the day
Sunday as the aforementioned cold front lifts northward as a warm
front. A few of the thunderstorms Sunday evening and into early
Monday morning may be strong to severe, capable of producing hail
to the size of half dollars, especially across parts of northeast

Additional showers and thunderstorms will be likely Monday and
into Monday night as another slow-moving cold front moves into the
region. A few of these thunderstorms will likely be severe, with
hail to the size of ping pong balls and winds to 60 mph possible.
Parts of eastern Oklahoma will be most likely to see severe
thunderstorms Monday.

In addition to the severe thunderstorm potential, the threat of
locally heavy rainfall will increase Monday night due to the slow
movement of the front. With the upper level system expected to be
slow to push east of the area, the heavy rainfall potential will
linger through at least Tuesday night and perhaps into Wednesday
morning as well. Storm total rainfall amounts in the 2 to 4 inch
range continue to appear possible, which could lead to both river
flooding and isolated flash flooding.

Monitor the latest forecasts as multiple rounds of heavy rainfall
and some severe weather potential appear likely, leading to
increased flooding concerns during the early to middle part of
next week. contains additional information.
