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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

FIRE WEATHER DANGER.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Eastern Oklahoma and Western Arkansas.
ONSET...Late Morning.

DISCUSSION...
Very high fire danger will exist from late morning through the
afternoon hours today. South to southwest winds will gust to 25
mph at times, while relative humidities will drop as low as 25
percent. These conditions, combined with the continued dry fuels,
will lead to the potential for rapid fire spread. Conditions will
improve this this evening as humidities increase and winds
subside. Light to moderate rain will also overspread the area
tonight, which could bring a short-lived improvement to the fire
danger.

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

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

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Fire danger will increase again Thursday, as warm temperatures and
increased southerly winds develop ahead of a strong cold front. Gusty
northwesterly winds and sharply colder temperatures will follow
the front set to move through the region Thursday night.
