This Outlook is for Northwest and West Central Arkansas as well as
much of Eastern Oklahoma.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

SIGNIFICANT WINDS.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Much of northeast Oklahoma.
ONSET...Ongoing...ending by sunset.

FIRE WEATHER DANGER.
RISK...Elevated.
AREA...Areas along and west of the highway 69 corridor.
ONSET...Ongoing...ending by sunset.

DISCUSSION...

Strong south winds, gusting in the 20 to 30 mph range, are
combining with dry air and vegetation to yield conditions
conducive to the rapid spread of wildfires. Conditions should
improve considerably as sunset approaches this evening.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Spotter Activation Not Expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday.
TUESDAY...High Wind Potential.
WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY...No Hazards.
FRIDAY...Fire Weather Potential.
SATURDAY and SUNDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...

A cold front will bring gusty north winds to the region on
Tuesday. Winds will gust in the 25 to 30 mph range across portions
of northeast Oklahoma. Cloudier skies and cooler temps will limit
the overall fire weather threat.

Well above average warmth and an increase in south to southwest
winds on Friday will likely yield another day of heightened fire
weather concerns across the region.
