For Monday, a weak front will sag into Arkansas today but only bring some clouds and a wind shift to the northeast to east. The weak front will stall overnight.
For Tuesday through Sunday, the weak front will gradually lift northward as a warm front and develop isolated showers. Then a strong storm system will cross the plains later Tuesday through Wednesday and develop showers and thunderstorms over the state. A slight risk of severe storms will be possible.
The main threats with this system will be strong damaging winds and large hail, while an isolated tornado threat will also be possible.
At this time the overall threat appears to be isolated and a wide spread severe weather event is not expected.
Uncertainty still does exist with the details on this system and conditions will be monitored closely over the next few days.
On Friday, another system will cross the plains and bring chances for showers and thunderstorms back. It remains too early to determine the exact threat for any severe weather, but this period will also be monitored closely.
