This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for a Large Part of Arkansas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Warmer temperatures and lower humidities are expected today ahead of
a cold front moving through the state. This will increase the fire
danger once again. The strongest winds will be in the east and the
lowest humidities will be in the west. Humidity levels will fall to
the mid 20s to lower 30s. Near Red Flag conditions may be seen today
...and outdoor burning is strongly discouraged...as most of the
state is now under a burn ban. A Lake wind Advisory is in effect for
many of the eastern counties where winds will gust to 35 mph.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday Through Tuesday

Overall the wildfire danger over Arkansas will remain high due to
the extended period of low rainfall. Outdoor burning is strongly
discouraged...and most of the state is now under a burn ban.

Rain chances do return Saturday night into Sunday morning...but
mainly light to moderate rain is expected. Until widespread
significant rainfall is observed...expect the wild fire danger to
remain at high levels given the severe to extreme drought currently
in place.

.Spotter Information Statement...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
