FIRE DANGER STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TULSA OK
307 AM CST SAT NOV 18 2017

...HIGH FIRE DANGER THIS AFTERNOON...

A STRONG COLD FRONT WILL SWEEP THROUGH THE AREA TODAY WITH GUSTY
NORTHWEST WINDS AT 30 TO 45 MPH.  THE STRONG WINDS, COUPLED WITH
A DRY AIR-MASS BEHIND THE FRONT, WILL CREATE AN ELEVATED FIRE DANGER
THREAT.  MINIMUM AFTERNOON RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES ARE EXPECTED TO
FALL TO AROUND 40 PERCENT ACROSS PORTIONS OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA WITH
SLIGHTLY HIGHER HUMIDITIES OVER NORTHWEST ARKANSAS.  LIMITED RAINFALL
HAS OCCURRED OVER THE PAST FEW WEEKS AND ANY WILDFIRES THAT DEVELOP
WILL LIKELY SPREAD RAPIDLY.  AVOID FIRE STARTS AND QUICKLY REPORT
ANY FIRES TO LOCAL OFFICIALS.

FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS WILL IMPROVE AFTER SUNSET AS WINDS BEGIN
TO SUBSIDE AND AS HUMIDITIES START TO RECOVER.
