South Central Arkansas, Southwest Arkansas, North Central Louisiana, Northwest Louisiana, East Texas, and Northeast Texas.
Expect scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon to increase in coverage and intensity late this evening into the overnight. Expect this activity to form along and ahead of a squall line that is forecasted to move southeast across the region tonight. Some storms may become severe this evening into early Monday morning with damaging winds, large hail, and isolated tornadoes possible. Localized heavy rainfall and isolated flash flooding will also be a possibility.
Monday through Saturday
Additional thunderstorms are possible on Monday, although the coverage of storms will depend on how widespread activity is on Sunday night. A threat for intense thunderstorms and further heavy rainfall could exist through the day.
Lower thunderstorm chances will continue through the rest of the week, mostly during the afternoon and evening hours each day. The highest chances will be along and east of I-35.
Spotter activation may be requested late this afternoon through tonight, especially along and north of the I-20 corridor. An unsettled pattern will set up over the Four State Region for the upcoming week. For the most part, daytime heating will lead to the chance for showers and thunderstorms to remain in the forecast through next weekend. Some of the stronger storms may produce locally gusty winds and brief, heavy rainfall each day.
SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT
Activation of emergency management personnel, amateur radio operators and storm spotters are requested this evening through Monday morning.
