THIS OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHWEST AND WEST CENTRAL ARKANSAS AS WELL AS

TORNADO.
RISK...LIMITED.
AREA...EXTREME SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA.
ONSET...AFTER 7 PM.

SEVERE THUNDERSTORM.
RISK...ELEVATED.
AREA...GENERALLY ALONG AND SOUTH OF INTERSTATE 40.

DISCUSSION...
CONDITIONS REMAIN UNSTABLE ACROSS SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA LATE THIS
AFTERNOON...AND THIS INSTABILITY WILL REMAIN IN PLACE THROUGH THE
EVENING HOURS.  SHOULD STORMS SPREAD INTO THIS REGION THEY WILL
POSE A RISK OF SEVERE WEATHER WITH HAIL AND DAMAGING WINDS THE
MOST LIKELY HAZARD...WITH A LESSER CHANCE OF TORNADOES.

AFTER MIDNIGHT...THE COVERAGE OF THUNDERSTORMS WILL INCREASE
ACROSS ALL OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS.  THE
BULK OF THE HIGHER INSTABILITY WILL BE ALONG AND SOUTH OF
INTERSTATE 40.  LARGE HAIL AND LOCALIZED DAMAGING WINDS WILL
REMAIN THE PRIMARY HAZARD...WITH CONDITIONS BECOMING LESS LIKELY
FOR TORNADIC POTENTIAL.  LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL IS ALSO LIKELY
ACROSS SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA CONTINUING INTO MONDAY.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
LOCAL SPOTTER ACTIVATION MAY BE NEEDED.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
MONDAY...THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL...HEAVY RAIN POTENTIAL.
TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY...NO HAZARDS.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS ARE LIKELY TO BE ONGOING MONDAY...THOUGH
THE POTENTIAL FOR SEVERE WEATHER WILL BE DECREASING AS THE
WIDESPREAD RAINFALL WILL ACT TO LIMIT INSTABILITY ACROSS THE
REGION.  LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL WILL REMAIN A CONCERN...ESPECIALLY
ACROSS FAR SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA WHERE RECENT HEAVY RAINS HAVE
FALLEN.  AFTER MONDAY...DRY AND MILD CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL
FOR MUCH OF THE UPCOMING WEEK.

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF NORTHERN...
WESTERN...CENTRAL...AND SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA...AND WESTERN NORTH
TEXAS.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT...

.THUNDERSTORMS...
THERE IS AN ENHANCED RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS OVER WESTERN
NORTH TEXAS AND PORTIONS OF SOUTHWEST OKLAHOMA... THERE IS ALSO A
SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS MOST OF SOUTHERN
OKLAHOMA.

LOCATION...
THE ENHANCED RISK EXTENDS SOUTH OF A LINE FROM ALTUS TO WAURIKA.

THE SLIGHT RISK INCLUDES ALL AREAS ALONG AND SOUTH OF A LINE FROM
ARNETT... TO NORMAN... TO HOLDENVILLE OKLAHOMA.

TIMING...
NOON TO MIDNIGHT

IMPACTS...
THE STRONGEST STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING DESTRUCTIVE
HAIL TO THE SIZE OF BASEBALLS AND 60 TO 70 MPH DAMAGING WIND
GUSTS. A FEW TORNADOES WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE... ESPECIALLY ACROSS
PORTIONS OF NORTHERN TEXAS AND SOUTHWESTERN OKLAHOMA.
ADDITIONALLY... LOCALIZED HEAVY RAINFALL MAY LEAD TO FLASH
FLOODING.

DISCUSSION...
A FRONTAL BOUNDARY HAS STALLED NEAR THE RED RIVER AND A DEEPENING
AREA OF LOW PRESSURE ACROSS WEST TEXAS WILL ALLOW A DRYLINE TO MIX
EASTWARD... FROM SOUTHWESTERN OKLAHOMA INTO CENTRAL TEXAS THROUGH
THE AFTERNOON HOURS. SOUTHEAST WINDS AHEAD OF THE DRYLINE WILL
ALLOW CONTINUAL TRANSPORT OF ABUNDANT LOW LEVEL MOISTURE... WHICH
WILL COMBINE WITH SUFFICIENT HEATING FOR THE PRODUCTION OF
MODERATE INSTABILITY. MEANWHILE... A STRONG UPPER LEVEL STORM
SYSTEM WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE INTO THE UNSTABLE AIRMASS THIS
AFTERNOON... RESULTING IN RAPID THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT ALONG
BOTH THE DRYLINE AND THE STALLED FRONT... WHICH MAY BEGIN A SLOW
RETREAT NORTHWARD LATE IN THE DAY. INITIAL STORMS WILL LIKELY
BECOME SEVERE RAPIDLY. COLD TEMPERATURES ALOFT WILL PROMOTE LARGE
HAIL GROWTH... AND SHEAR WILL SUPPORT HAIL TO THE SIZE OF
BASEBALLS IN THE STRONGEST STORMS. THIS POTENTIAL WILL BE GREATEST
ACROSS NORTHERN TEXAS INTO SOUTHWESTERN AND FAR SOUTHERN
OKLAHOMA. AS AN AREA OF BACKED SURFACE WINDS DEVELOPS DURING THE
LATE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING... LOW LEVEL SHEAR WILL INCREASE
THE CHANCE FOR TORNADO DEVELOPMENT WITHIN THE STRONGEST STORMS
ACROSS PORTIONS OF NORTHERN TEXAS AND POTENTIALLY INTO FAR
SOUTHWESTERN OKLAHOMA.

ONE OR MORE STORM CLUSTERS MAY DEVELOP DURING THE EVENING AND
OVERNIGHT HOURS. WITH ADEQUATE INSTABILITY AND FAVORABLE WIND
PROFILES... SEVERE THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL IS LIKELY TO LINGER
INTO THE EARLY OVERNIGHT... WITH THE MAIN CONCERN BEING LARGE
HAIL AND STRONG WIND GUSTS. HEAVY RAINFALL WILL LIKELY ACCOMPANY
SOME OF THE STORMS... AND AREAS THAT RECEIVE PROLONGED RAINFALL
WITH SEVERAL ROUNDS OF STORMS WILL LIKELY SEE FLOODING.

.SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT STATEMENT...
STORM SPOTTER GROUPS AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PERSONNEL ACROSS
THE RISK AREA SHOULD PREPARE FOR SEVERE WEATHER OPERATIONS THIS
AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY...

.THUNDERSTORMS...
THE THREAT OF SEVERE STORMS SHOULD DIMINISH BY EARLY MONDAY...
BUT A FEW STRONG STORMS WILL REMAIN POSSIBLE... WITH HAIL AND
GUSTY WINDS THE PRIMARY CONCERNS. RAIN IS LIKELY TO LINGER INTO
AT LEAST TUESDAY MORNING... BEFORE GRADUALLY WINDING DOWN DURING
THE DAY. THE PRIMARY CONCERN MONDAY AND TUESDAY WILL BE THE EVER
INCREASING FLOOD POTENTIAL DUE TO PROLONGED HEAVY RAINFALL. AT
THIS TIME... AREAS OF WEST CENTRAL INTO CENTRAL... AND SOUTHERN
OKLAHOMA... APPEAR TO HAVE THE GREATEST CHANCES FOR FLASH
FLOODING AND POSSIBLY RIVER FLOODING. IF MODELS CONTINUE TO
DEPICT HEAVY RAINFALL IN THESE AREAS...A FLOOD WATCH MAY BECOME
NECESSARY.

SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH MID

CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE ALONG AND WEST OF THE I-35

HAIL...DAMAGING WINDS...AND POSSIBLY TORNADOES. THE TORNADO THREAT
IS GREATEST SOUTHWEST OF A DECATUR TO HILLSBORO TO TEMPLE LINE
BETWEEN 5 PM AND 9 PM.

THE RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE INTO THE NIGHTTIME
HOURS AS A LINE OF STORMS DEVELOPS OUT WEST AND MARCHES EAST
ACROSS MUCH OF NORTH AND CENTRAL TEXAS. DAMAGING STRAIGHT LINE
WINDS AND LARGE HAIL WILL BE THE PRIMARY SEVERE WEATHER THREATS
TONIGHT...BUT A TORNADO CAN NOT BE RULED OUT.

ALL THUNDERSTORMS WILL HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO PRODUCE DANGEROUS
LIGHTNING AND LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL THAT MAY LEAD TO FLASH
FLOODING.

ALL OF NORTH CENTRAL TEXAS. SOME THUNDERSTORMS MAY BE SEVERE WITH
