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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE WILL MOVE ACROSS ARKANSAS TODAY WITH
SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS EXPECTED MAINLY DURING THE
AFTERNOON HOURS. THERE IS A MARGINAL RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS,
WITH LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING WINDS THE MAIN THREATS. ALSO, WITH THE
SLOW MOVING STORMS, THERE WILL BE THE INCREASED POSSIBILITY OF
LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN.

AFTERNOON HIGHS WILL ONLY REACH THE MID 80S TO MID 90S DUE TO THE
INCREASE IN CLOUD COVER. HOWEVER...WITH PLENTY OF HUMIDITY STILL IN
PLACE...HEAT INDICES WILL STILL MAKE IT INTO THE UPPER 90S DURING
THE AFTERNOON HOURS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY

MORE SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE FORECAST THROUGH SUNDAY
AS THE AREA REMAINS BETWEEN UPPER LEVEL RIDGES. THUNDERSTORM
CHANCES WILL DECREASE MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY AS THE RIDGE
BUILDS OVER ARKANSAS AGAIN. OTHER THAN CLOUD TO GROUND
LIGHTNING...SOME GUSTY WINDS COULD ALSO BE SEEN WITH SOME OF THE
STRONGER STORMS.

GIVEN THE SLOW MOVEMENT OF ANY STORMS... LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL WILL
BE POSSIBLE...RESULTING IN AN ISOLATED FLASH FLOOD THREAT. THE
THREAT FOR ANY SEVERE STORMS WILL REMAIN ISOLATED AND LOW.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION MAY BE NEEDED IN THE AFTERNOON.
