As for the Severe Weather Threat, the best chance of any stronger storms would be moving through Northwest Arkansas and the River Valley very early Tuesday morning.

Gusty winds appear to be the main threat. There is a chance for an isolated tornado, but the best chance of that would be in Western and Central Oklahoma Monday evening, with the threat staying south of NWA and the River Valley by Tuesday.
