...HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT...


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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

SEVERE THUNDERSTORM.
RISK...Limited.
AREA... Far southeast Oklahoma and west-central Arkansas.
ONSET... This Afternoon and early evening.

DANGEROUS HEAT.
RISK...Elevated.
    AREA... Most of eastern Oklahoma and west-central Arkansas.
    ONSET... This Afternoon.


DISCUSSION...
Hot and humid conditions will persist today. A Heat Advisory has
been issued for most of eastern Oklahoma and west-central
Arkansas. Heat indices within the advisory area will be at or just
above 105 this afternoon while locations outside of the advisory
area will see indices of 95 to 105. Heat indices will likely reach
over 100 for many locations by 1PM today. Be sure to take extra
precautions this afternoon and evening if you plan on being
outside.

A few thunderstorms will also be possible across portions of far
southeastern Oklahoma and west-central Arkansas during peak
heating this afternoon. Any storm that develops will have the
potential to be severe with the main severe threat being locally
damaging wind gusts.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Local Spotter Activation May Be Needed.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.
SUNDAY...No Hazards.
MONDAY AND TUESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain
Potential.
WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
The upper level ridge that has given us hot and humid conditions
over the past several days will hold on through Sunday but will
show signs of weakening thanks to the approach of the remnants of
Tropical Storm Cristobal and the approach of an incoming cold
front. As a result, heat indices will not be as high as previous
days on Sunday, but heat indices of near or just above 100 will
still be expected.

Thunderstorm chances and heavy rain potential will increase Monday
into Tuesday as the remnants of Tropical Storm Cristobal move
across parts of the area. Continue to monitor future forecasts
and statements for additional details, as the location of greatest
heavy rain impacts will depend on the eventual track of the
remnants.

Quiet weather returns by Wednesday as another upper level ridge
builds over the plains.
