with with widespread gusts in the 30 to 45 mph range that will
continue into the afternoon hours.  A wind advisory will be in

drier air pushing into the region combined with the gusty winds will
result in  very high to elevated fire danger across much of eastern
Oklahoma into northwest Arkansas.  The greatest fire spread potential
can be expected across much of eastern Oklahoma where minimum

weekend. Lack of moisture return ahead of the boundaries will
result in very limited chances for precipitation.
