This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for a Large Part of Arkansas.
.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight
Storms will become more widespread through today into tonight,
first across northwestern and northern Arkansas, and spreading
southeast with time. Damaging winds and large hail are the primary
threats with some tornado potential with any isolated storms.
Localized flooding will also be possible.
.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday Through Friday
Showers and thunderstorms will exit toward the Gulf Coast on Sunday,
with precipitation becoming more isolated to scattered through
Monday. Another round of storms is expected Tuesday into Thursday.
While spotty severe weather is possible through Wednesday, the main
concern will be areas of heavy rain. The forecast calls for two to
more than five inches of rain, with the highest amounts in southwest
sections of the state. Given this much rain, flash flooding and
rises on area rivers are becoming more likely. This could be a
significant high water event in parts of the state, so Arkansans are
advised to continue monitoring this developing situation.
.Spotter Information Statement...
Spotter activation will be needed today and tonight.
