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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

FIRE WEATHER DANGER.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Northeast Oklahoma.
ONSET...ongoing.

DISCUSSION...
A limited fire weather danger will continue for the next couple of

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
THURSDAY and Friday...High Wind Potential.
SATURDAY...No Hazards.
SUNDAY through Tuesday...Thunderstorm Potential.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...

An elevated fire danger is forecast for Thursday for portions of
eastern Oklahoma as temperatures soar in the 80s with the aid of
a gusty southerly wind. Dry fuels and relative humidity values
around 30 percent will also contribute to the elevated fire danger.
With that in mind, a Fire Weather Watch /OKCRFWTSA/ has been posted for
areas to the west of highway 75 in eastern Oklahoma from 11 am Thursday
until 8 pm Thursday evening.

Fire weather concerns continue on Friday even in the wake of a cold front
that will move through the region Thursday Night into Friday Morning.

The chances of showers and thunderstorms will return to the forecast
late in the weekend and into early next week as a series of upper level
disturbances moves across the region.
