This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of south central
Arkansas, southwest Arkansas, north central Louisiana, northwest
Louisiana, southeast Oklahoma, east Texas and northeast Texas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight...

A potent upper level disturbance will move across the Four-State
Region this afternoon through this evening. This disturbance will
increase instability across the region, leading to the development
of a line of thunderstorms along a cold front. Some of the
thunderstorms will be capable of becoming strong to severe with
large hail, damaging wind gusts and isolated tornadoes being the
main threats. In addition, breezy conditions will occur along the
cold front, with northwest wind speeds increasing into the 15 to
25 mph range sustained, with gusts nearing 40 mph or higher this
afternoon through this evening. A Lake Wind Advisory is therefore
in effect from 9 AM this morning through 9 pm this evening.
Precipitation will be exiting the region around midnight tonight.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday...

A very warm, humid, and unstable conditions will return to the
region by Friday as this front lifts back north as a warm front,
with isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms possible
along and north of this returning front Thursday night and Friday.
An isolated strong or severe thunderstorm can not be ruled out
Friday with this activity.

The approach of another upper level disturbance for the weekend
will result in the development of a line of thunderstorms along a
cold front, that will move across the Four-State Region from west
to east Saturday night into Sunday morning. Once again, strong
wind shear and instability may lead to some of the thunderstorms
becoming strong to severe.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Activation of emergency management personnel...amateur radio
operators...and storm spotters will be required early this
afternoon through this evening.

Louisiana, south central Louisiana, southwest Louisiana, west
central Louisiana, and southeast Texas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight
An upper level trough and associated cold front will push through

damaging winds and isolated tornadoes will be possible. This
threat will come to an end late this evening.

In addition to the threat for severe weather, winds away from
storms will gust to 25 to 30 MPH today. This will pose a threat to
high profile vehicles especially across open areas and bridges.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

...Severe storms and flash flooding possible through early afternoon...

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.
TORNADO.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Far Southeast Oklahoma and Western Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing.

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

HEAVY RAIN.
RISK...Elevated.
AREA...Far Southeast Oklahoma and Western Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing.

SIGNIFICANT WINDS.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Eastern Oklahoma and Western Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing.

DISCUSSION...
Scattered strong to severe thunderstorms continue this morning
across portions of eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas ahead of
a slow moving cold front. As a strong upper storm system
approaches from the southwest today, renewed thunderstorm
development is likely, mainly across far eastern Oklahoma and
western Arkansas. The main threat from these storms will be
damaging winds and large hail. There is a limited tornado threat,
mainly across far southeast Oklahoma into western Arkansas, until
the front clears the area, later this afternoon.

Flash flooding is also a major concern. Some locations have
received 1-2 inches of rain from the overnight storms, and soils
are already saturated. Additional rainfall totals are expected to
be in the 1 to 2 inch range across portions of eastern Oklahoma
and western Arkansas. A flash flood watch remains in effect until
1 PM for portions of the area.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Activation of the Regional Spotter Network Likely.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
THURSDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...High Wind Potential.
FRIDAY and SATURDAY...Severe Thunderstorm Potential...High Wind Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
SUNDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...High Wind Potential.
MONDAY and TUESDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
There may be a brief lull in thunderstorms late Wednesday into
Thursday between weather systems. Additional storms may form
Thursday evening as the next low pressure system approaches.

On Friday, a warm front will move north across central and
eastern Oklahoma and be a focus for strong to severe
thunderstorms. The airmass may remain capped much of the afternoon
on Friday, with the better chance for storms developing by late
afternoon into early evening. Strong deep layer wind shear and
moderate instability will support supercells capable of large
hail, damaging winds and tornadoes across much of the Southern
Plains. Eventually, these late afternoon and evening storms will
form a large complex of storms, with the potential for heavy rain.

Flooding is becoming an increasing concern for this weekend`s
upcoming storm system. It now appears that 6-7 inches of rain is
possible for portions of southeast Oklahoma into western Arkansas
with isolated higher amounts. This will cause river flooding as
well as flash flooding.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PLANNING STATEMENT...
Continue to follow the latest updates regarding the expected
hazardous weather this week. Get graphical forecasts at

.NOW...

At 8:10 AM, National Weather Service Doppler Radars continued to
detect a line of showers and thunderstorms affecting much of
eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas. This line was extending
from near Osage in Carroll County, southwest toward Hugo in
Choctaw County. Some of the storms within this line had become
strong to severe, producing large hail and strong winds. All this
activity was moving toward the northeast, around 45 miles per
hour.

Through 10:00 AM, a line of showers and thunderstorms will continue
to push eastward across the area, with the storms within this line
tracking northeast. While the strength of the storms had weakened
some this morning, there is still a chance that a few of the
storms could become strong to severe. The main threats will be
hail and strong winds. With the high amounts of rainfall that has
occurred over the past several days, the heavy rainfall from these
storms could also cause flooding issues.
