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 Northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing.

DISCUSSION...
Warmer temperatures along with low humidity and southwest winds
around 10 mph will lead to limited fire spread potential this
afternoon.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.
FRIDAY...High Wind Potential.
SATURDAY through SUNDAY...No Hazards.
MONDAY...Very High Fire Weather Potential...High Wind Potential.
TUESDAY through WEDNESDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Surface high pressure will slide continue to slide east into
Friday. As this occurs, gusty south to southwest winds of
20 to 35 miles an hour will develop along with temperatures well
above seasonal averages. The highest fire danger is expected
across northeast Oklahoma where the strongest winds and warmest
temperatures are forecast. A dry front will move through the area
early Saturday which will result in slightly cooler temperatures
and lower wind speeds. A similar fire weather setup is anticipated
Monday. Despite slightly higher afternoon relative humidity
values, very gusty south winds will result in a very high fire
danger through the afternoon. The fastest spread rates can be
expected across northeast Oklahoma both Friday and Monday. Another
frontal boundary will sweep the area Tuesday. Precipitation
chances with this front appear limited at this time.
