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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

SIGNIFICANT WINDS.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Northeast Oklahoma.
ONSET...Ongoing.

FIRE WEATHER DANGER.
RISK...Limited.
    AREA...Mainly northeast Oklahoma and far northwest Arkansas.
    ONSET...Midday...Decreasing by late afternoon.

DISCUSSION...
South winds will increase today, with gusts of 25 to 30 miles an
hour by this afternoon across parts of northeast Oklahoma. The
gusty winds and warmer temperatures will result in a limited fire
danger this afternoon across mainly northeast Oklahoma, despite
increasing low level moisture.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
FRIDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
SATURDAY...No Hazards.
SUNDAY...High Wind Potential.
MONDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...High Wind Potential.
TUESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
WEDNESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...High Wind Potential.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
A weak cold front will move across the area late Friday and Friday
night bringing a chance of thunderstorms. Some of the storms may
be strong, but organized severe weather is not expected. Warm
temperatures through most of the next week will also result in at
least a limited fire danger most days. The weather pattern next
week looks rather unsettled as a frontal boundary is likely to set
up somewhere nearby, and an upper level storm system will then
approach by the middle part of the week. Near daily thunderstorm
chances will exist as a result of these two features.
