Hazardous Weather Outlook. This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of south central Arkansas, southwest Arkansas, north central Louisiana, northwest Louisiana, southeast Oklahoma, east Texas and northeast Texas. Day one. This Afternoon and Tonight. Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected this afternoon over much of East Texas, Southeast Oklahoma, Southwest Arkansas, and possibly extreme Northwest Louisiana, before spreading east into Southcentral Arkansas and Northcentral Louisiana this evening. This will occur as an upper level disturbance ejects northeast across Northeast Texas, Southeast Oklahoma, and Southwest Arkansas this afternoon, ahead of the dryline that will mix east into Eastcentral Texas. Given the extent of instability, wind shear, and low level moisture in place, an isolated severe weather threat will be possible, with damaging winds, an isolated tornado or two, and brief heavy rainfall possible. These storms will shift east and gradually diminish tonight over Deep East Texas, North Louisiana, and Southcentral Arkansas. In addition, strong southerly winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph will continue this afternoon, before diminishing by early evening. Thus, a Lake Wind Advisory remains in effect until 7 PM this evening. Days two through seven. Wednesday through Monday. No hazardous weather is expected. Spotter information statement. Activation of emergency managers, spotter networks, and amateur radio operators, may be needed this afternoon for any isolated severe thunderstorms that may develop.
See you tomorrow!
