    AREA OF GREATEST RISK...LOCATIONS NORTHWEST OF INTERSTATE 44.


DISCUSSION...
GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS AND A VERY DRY AIRMASS WILL MOVE
INTO EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS TODAY FOLLOWING
A COLD FRONTAL PASSAGE. THE COMBINATION OF STRONG WINDS AND LOW
RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES WILL LEAD TO AN ELEVATED RISK OF RAPID FIRE
SPREAD TODAY...ESPECIALLY LOCATIONS ALONG AND NORTHWEST OF INTERSTATE 44
WHERE WINDS WILL BE STRONGEST THIS AFTERNOON. FIRE DANGER WILL BE
TEMPERED OVERNIGHT AS RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES INCREASE.


SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
MONDAY...VERY HIGH FIRE WEATHER POTENTIAL...HIGH WIND POTENTIAL.
TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY...NO HAZARDS.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER WILL CONTINUE MONDAY AS STRONGER NORTHWEST
WINDS DEVELOP DURING THE DAY ACROSS THE ENTIRE AREA. THE LOW
RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES IN PLACE ALONG WITH DRY FUELS WILL REMAIN
CONDUCIVE FOR QUICK IGNITION AND RAPID FIRE SPREAD FOR MOST OF THE
DAY.

DRY CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL FOR THE REST OF THE UPCOMING
WEEK...HOWEVER LESS WINDY CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED BEYOND MONDAY.
