THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR A LARGE PART OF ARKANSAS.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

SCATTERED TO AT TIMES NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE
POSSIBLE OVER MUCH OF CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN ARKANSAS TODAY. THE
CONVECTION IS ASSOCIATED WITH AN UPPER LEVEL WEATHER SYSTEM...AND
A STALLED FRONTAL BOUNDARY OVER FAR SOUTHERN ARKANSAS. AN ISOLATED
STRONG TO SEVERE STORM MAY ALSO BE SEEN TODAY...BUT OVERALL
COVERAGE WILL BE LOW. THE MAIN THREATS FROM A SEVERE STORM WOULD
BE STRONG WINDS AND HAIL. THE STORMS WILL ALSO CONTAIN HEAVY RAIN
AND LOCALIZED FLOODING OF ROADWAYS AND LOW LYING AREAS WILL BE
POSSIBLE. STORM ACTIVITY IS EXPECTED TO GRADUALLY LOWER LATER THIS
AFTERNOON AND EVENING. TONIGHT...THE STALLED BOUNDARY OVER
SOUTHERN ARKANSAS MAY LIFT MORE NORTH...AND HELP KEEP ISOLATED
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY

AN UNSETTLED WEATHER PATTERN WILL REMAIN OVER THE REGION FOR MUCH
OF THE EXTENDED FORECAST...WITH SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS
POSSIBLE ALMOST EVER DAY. THE BEST CHANCE WILL BE FRIDAY AS A
STRONGER STORM SYSTEM MOVES THROUGH THE REGION AND WILL DEVELOP
SOME STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS. DAMAGING WINDS AND LARGE HAIL WILL
REMAIN THE GREATEST THREATS. AREAS OF HEAVY RAIN WILL ALSO BE
POSSIBLE AND LOCALIZED FLOODING A CONCERN. THE STORM SYSTEM WILL
GRADUALLY MOVE EAST OF ARKANSAS ON SATURDAY...BEFORE MAINLY DRY
WEATHER RETURNS TO THE AREA FOR SUNDAY. TO START THE WORK
WEEK...ANOTHER SOUTHERN STREAM SYSTEM BEGINS TO MOVE TOWARD THE
REGION...AND SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE BACK IN THE FORECAST BY
MONDAY AND LAST TO EARLY WEDNESDAY.

SOME UNCERTAINTY DOES REMAIN IN THE EXACT LOCATION...TIMING AND
AMOUNT OF CONVECTION EACH DAY...ESPECIALLY WITH ANY SEVERE STORM
THREAT...AND THIS WILL BE FINE TUNED THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION IS NOT ANTICIPATED TODAY. DUE TO A BETTER
THREAT OF SEVERE STORMS ON FRIDAY...SPOTTER ACTIVATION MAY BE
NEEDED.
