TODAY WILL BE A WINDY AND WARMER DAY ACROSS EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND
NORTHWEST ARKANSAS. CONDITIONS WILL BE NEAR RED FLAG CRITERIA IN
OSAGE AND PAWNEE COUNTIES THIS AFTERNOON...WHICH ARE THE ONLY TWO

CONDITIONS JUST BELOW RED FLAG BUT IT WILL BE CLOSE.

MOST OF THE RAIN WITH THE NEXT SYSTEM THURSDAY AND THURSDAY
EVENING WILL REMAIN TO OUR WEST. SURFACE WINDS WILL BECOME
NORTHEASTERLY THURSDAY WHICH WILL HELP HOLD LOW LEVEL DRY AIR IN
PLACE AND ERODE THE EASTERN EDGE OF THE RAIN SHIELD. AS A
RESULT...HAVE LOWERED POPS FOR THIS TIME PERIOD AND HAVE ALSO
REMOVED THE MENTION OF THUNDER.

SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL INCREASE SATURDAY NIGHT
THROUGH MONDAY AS AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE MOVES SLOWLY EAST
ACROSS THE AREA. AFTER THIS SYSTEM DEPARTS EARLY NEXT WEEK...WELL
