...WIND ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH 5 PM FOR ALL OF
EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS...

...DANGEROUS FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS LATE THIS AFTERNOON...

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.
SIGNIFICANT WINDS.
RISK...Elevated.
AREA...Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.
 ONSET...Ongoing...Winds will decrease late this afternoon and
evening.

FIRE WEATHER DANGER.
RISK...Elevated
    AREA...Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.
 ONSET...Afternoon.


DISCUSSION...
A cold front swept through early this morning bringing a
significant temperature drop and strong winds to the region. A
wind advisory remains in effect for these strong winds through
5 pm this afternoon. Despite cooler temperatures, drier air
pushing into the region combined with the gusty winds will result
in an elevated fire danger across much of eastern Oklahoma into
northwest Arkansas by late this afternoon. The greatest fire
spread potential can be expected across much of eastern Oklahoma
where minimum afternoon relative humidity values will be lowest in
conjunction with the strongest winds. Winds and the fire threat will
subside this evening as surface high pressure settles over the
Southern Plains.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.
SUNDAY...No Hazards.
MONDAY...Very High Fire Weather Potential.
TUESDAY through FRIDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
A prolonged period of dry and settled weather is expected across
the region for the upcoming week. Several cold fronts will sweep
through the area, the first on Tuesday and the next towards the
weekend. Lack of moisture return ahead of the boundaries will
result in very limited chances for precipitation.
