THIS OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHWEST AND WEST CENTRAL ARKANSAS AS WELL AS
MUCH OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

HEAVY RAIN.
RISK...LIMITED.
AREA...EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS.
ONSET...BY MID EVENING IN EASTERN OKLAHOMA...LATE TONIGHT NORTHWEST
ARKANSAS.

FIRE DANGER.
RISK...LIMITED.
AREA...NORTHWEST ARKANSAS...SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA.
ONSET...ONGOING.

DISCUSSION...

AHEAD OF THE RAIN SHIELD ACROSS NORTHWEST ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST
OKLAHOMA...STRONGER SOUTH TO SOUTHEAST WINDS AND RELATIVELY DRY
AIR WILL YIELD A LIMITED FIRE DANGER THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE
DAY. RAIN MOVING IN THIS EVENING WILL END THIS THREAT.

LIGHT TO MODERATE RAIN WILL OVERSPREAD THE REGION TONIGHT. GIVEN
THE RECENT DRY SPELL...THE AMOUNT OF FORECASTED
RAINFALL...GENERALLY AT OR LESS THAN AN INCH...IS NOT EXPECTED TO
PRODUCE ANY FLOODING ISSUES.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION NOT EXPECTED.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
SUNDAY...VERY HIGH FIRE WEATHER POTENTIAL...HIGH WIND POTENTIAL.
MONDAY AND TUESDAY...NO HAZARDS.
WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY...WINTER WEATHER POTENTIAL.
FRIDAY...NO HAZARDS.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...

STRONG NORTHWEST WINDS BEHIND A COLD FRONT SUNDAY WILL PRODUCE
GUSTS TO NEAR 35 MPH AT TIMES ACROSS EASTERN OKLAHOMA. THE STRONG
WINDS AND DRIER AIR WORKING ITS WAY INTO THE REGION BEHIND THE
FRONT WILL RAISE FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS. HOWEVER...THESE SAME AREAS
ARE GETTING RAINFALL TODAY AND TONIGHT...AND THIS WILL MORE THAN
LIKELY LIMIT THE THREAT OVERALL.

THE POTENTIAL FOR WINTRY WEATHER WITH SOME IMPACTS REMAINS WITH
THE NEXT FRONT AND UPPER STORM SYSTEM FORECAST TO SWEEP ACROSS
THE PLAINS THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. HOWEVER...UNCERTAINTY IN THE
DETAILS REMAINS HIGH...SO CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES TO THE FORECAST
AS THIS TIME GETS CLOSER.
