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...EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS.
ONSET...ONGOING THROUGH LATE AFTERNOON.

FIRE WEATHER DANGER.
RISK...ELEVATED.
AREA...EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS.
ONSET...ONGOING THROUGH LATE AFTERNOON.

DISCUSSION...
NORTHWEST WINDS GUSTING TO 35 MPH AT TIMES WILL CONTINUE THROUGH
LATE AFTERNOON TODAY BEFORE SUBSIDING. THE COMBINATION OF THE
STRONG WINDS AND VERY LOW AFTERNOON RELATIVE HUMIDITIES WILL
CONTINUE THE ELEVATED RISK OF RAPID FIRE SPREAD THROUGH LATE
AFTERNOON. THE MOST CRITICAL CONDITIONS WILL BE FOUND ACROSS PARTS
OF WEST CENTRAL ARKANSAS...WHERE RED FLAG CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION NOT EXPECTED.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY.
WEDNESDAY...VERY HIGH FIRE WEATHER POTENTIAL.
THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY...NO HAZARDS.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
WELL ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TOMORROW...AS WINDS
SHIFT TO THE SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST. ALTHOUGH WINDS SHOULD BE LESS
GUSTY THAN TODAY...THE CONTINUED DRY LOW LEVELS WILL LEAD TO
ANOTHER DAY OF HIGH FIRE DANGER FOR WEDNESDAY.

COOLER TEMPERATURES WILL SETTLE OVER THE AREA BEGINNING
THURSDAY...WITH A STRONGER PUSH OF COLD AIR EXPECTED SATURDAY. A
STRONG WAVE MOVING THROUGH THE PLAINS REGION MAY OFFER LOW
CHANCES FOR RAIN SUNDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHT. A QUICK WARMUP IS LIKELY
TO FOLLOW FOR THE EARLY PART OF NEXT WEEK.
