   PUBLIC SEVERE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0830 PM CDT SUN APR 27 2014

   ...Outbreak of tornadoes and severe thunderstorms expected over
   parts of the Ozarks and surrounding areas overnight...

   * LOCATIONS...
     Much of Arkansas

   * HAZARDS...
     Numerous tornadoes, several intense and long track
     Widespread large hail, some baseball size
     Isolated damaging winds

   * SUMMARY...
     Widespread severe thunderstorms will continue to affect a large
     portion of the central U.S. this evening and into the overnight
     hours -- with the risk for large hail and damaging winds along
     with several tornadoes. The area of the greatest risk for severe
     weather -- including a couple of strong to possibly violent
     tornadoes -- will remain centered on Arkansas.

   Preparedness actions...

   Tornadoes at night can be particularly dangerous because they 
   are usually fast-moving and difficult to see. Stay tuned to
   NOAA Weather Radio, weather.gov, or other media for watches and
   warnings. A tornado watch means that conditions are favorable
   for tornadoes to form during the next several hours. If a tornado
   warning is issued for your area, move to a place of safety,
   ideally in a basement or interior room on the lowest floor of a
   sturdy building.
