AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TULSA OK
1014 AM CST MON NOV 24 2014

...UPDATE...

.DISCUSSION...
MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES AND WESTERLY WINDS WERE COMMON ACROSS EASTERN
OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS THIS MORNING. TO THE NORTHEAST OF
THE CWA...THE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM THAT MOVED ACROSS THE REGION
YESTERDAY WAS LIFTING INTO THE GREAT LAKES REGION. TO THE
SOUTHWEST OF THE CWA...SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE WAS LOCATED OVER THE
DESERT SOUTHWEST. WITH THE CWA BETWEEN THESE TWO FEATURES...THE
PRESSURE GRADIENT FORCE SHOULD KEEP WEST NORTHWESTERLY WINDS
BREEZY IN THE 10 TO 25 MPH RANGE THROUGH THE AFTERNOON HOURS. AN
UPPER LEVEL TROF AXIS IS EXPECTED TO PUSH THROUGH THE REGION LATE
THIS AFTERNOON/EARLY EVENING...THUS ALLOWING WINDS TO SUBSIDE
OVERNIGHT TONIGHT.

COOLER/DRIER AIR COMBINED WITH COLD AIR ADVECTION OVER THE REGION
IN THE WAKE OF THE YESTERDAYS COLD FRONT SHOULD HELP TO KEEP
AFTERNOON TEMPS CLOSER TO THE SEASONAL AVERAGE. THOUGH...
SUBSIDENCE OVER THE REGION SHOULD ALLOW FOR CLEAR SKIES WITH
MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF SUNSHINE TODAY. THESE CONDITIONS WITH THE BREEZY
WINDS WILL CREATE AN ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER DANGER OVER NORTHEAST
OKLAHOMA AND PARTS OF SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA INTO WEST CENTRAL
ARKANSAS. ACROSS THE REST OF THE CWA...A LIMITED FIRE DANGER WILL
BE POSSIBLE. MORNING UPDATE WILL BE TO TWEAK TEMP AND WIND GRIDS
FOR THIS AFTERNOON BASED ON THE LATEST TRENDS AND THE MENTIONED
ABOVE...OTHERWISE THE CURRENT FORECAST SEEMS TO BE HANDLING WELL.
