THIS OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHWEST AND WEST CENTRAL ARKANSAS AS WELL AS

DISCUSSION...
INCREASING EAST TO SOUTHEAST WINDS THIS AFTERNOON AHEAD OF AN
APPROACHING STORM SYSTEM WILL LEAD TO LIMITED FIRE SPREAD
POTENTIAL THIS AFTERNOON MAINLY ACROSS EASTERN OKLAHOMA. AS THIS
SYSTEM MOVES INTO THE PLAINS TONIGHT...SHOWERS AND SCATTERED
THUNDERSTORMS WILL SPREAD ACROSS EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND EVENTUALLY
INTO NORTHWEST ARKANSAS BY EARLY TUESDAY MORNING. STRONG WINDS FIELDS
COULD SUPPORT A FEW STRONG TO MARGINALLY SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS
PARTS OF NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA LATER THIS EVENING...BUT OVERALL LACK OF
INSTABILITY SHOULD PRECLUDE MORE WIDESPREAD SEVERE WEATHER.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
LOCAL SPOTTER ACTIVATION MAY BE NEEDED.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
TUESDAY...VERY HIGH FIRE WEATHER POTENTIAL...HIGH WIND POTENTIAL.
WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY...NO HAZARDS.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
A COLD FRONT WILL QUICKLY SWEEP EAST OF THE AREA BY TUESDAY
AFTERNOON. GUSTY WEST TO NORTHWEST WINDS WILL DEVELOP ON TUESDAY
WHICH WILL RAISE WILDFIRE SPREAD POTENTIAL. COOLER AND DRY WEATHER
WILL PREVAIL FOR LATE WEEK.
