EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Surface high pressure will slide continue to slide east into
Friday. As this occurs, gusty south to southwest winds of
20 to 30 miles an hour will develop along with temperatures well
above seasonal averages. The highest fire danger is expected
across northeast Oklahoma where the strongest winds and warmest
temperatures are forecast. A dry front will move through the area
early Saturday which will result in slightly cooler temperatures
and lower wind speeds. A similar fire weather setup is anticipated
Monday. Despite slightly higher afternoon relative humidity
values, very gusty south winds will result in a very high fire
danger through the afternoon. The fastest spread rates can be
expected across northeast Oklahoma both Friday and Monday.
Another frontal boundary will sweep the area Tuesday. Precipitation
chances with this front appear limited at this time.
