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...Northeast Oklahoma.
ONSET...Ongoing.

FIRE WEATHER DANGER.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.
ONSET..Ongoing.


DISCUSSION...
Limited fire weather danger continue across eastern Oklahoma and northwest
Arkansas...especially across northeast Oklahoma as winds have
already shifted to the northwest with gusts between 20 and 30
miles per hour. Ahead of the front...southwest winds will slowly shift
out of the west...and then northwest later today once the cold
front pushes through the rest of the region.

Wind speeds combined with above seasonal average
temperatures...minimum relative humidity values less than 25
percent for most locations. With ongoing dry conditions factored
in, fire concerns will continue through sunset. The multiple wind
shifts today could create difficulties for any ongoing wildfires.
After sunset...wind speeds should begin to decrease while relative
humidity values recover.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY...No Hazards.
SATURDAY...Fire Danger Potential.
SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Breezy southerly winds and warmer temperatures return Saturday
ahead of a low pressure system forecast to move across the region
Sunday. Conditions ahead of this system on Saturday will aid in
increasing fire weather concerns again for Eastern Oklahoma and
Northwest Arkansas. Chances for rain increase some for Saturday
night and Sunday as the system moves through. At this time, the
higher chances for precipitation look to be across Southeast
Oklahoma and into Northwest Arkansas.
