THIS OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHWEST AND WEST CENTRAL ARKANSAS AS WELL AS
MUCH OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT.

SIGNIFICANT WINDS.
RISK...LIMITED.
AREA...EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS.
ONSET...ONGOING.

FIRE WEATHER DANGER.
RISK...LIMITED.
AREA...EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS.
ONSET...ONGOING.

DISCUSSION...
SOUTHERLY WINDS WILL CONTINUE TO GUST TO AROUND 30 MILES AN HOUR
INTO THE EARLY EVENING BEFORE SLOWLY DIMINISHING. A LIMITED FIRE
DANGER WILL CONTINUE INTO THE EVENING HOURS BEFORE THE RISK
SUBSIDES. ONGOING FIREFIGHTER EFFORTS MAY BE HAMPERED BY A WIND
SHIFT TO THE NORTH LATER TONIGHT.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION NOT EXPECTED.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY...WINTER WEATHER POTENTIAL.
SUNDAY...THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL...HEAVY RAIN POTENTIAL.
MONDAY...THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL.
TUESDAY...NO HAZARDS.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
POTENTIALLY SIGNIFICANT ICE ACCUMULATIONS...HEAVY RAINFALL AND
FLOODING REMAIN LIKELY FROM FRIDAY MORNING THROUGH THE
WEEKEND...AS A SLOW MOVING...STRONG UPPER LEVEL STORM SYSTEM
IMPACTS OKLAHOMA AND ARKANSAS. PARTS OF NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA TO THE
NORTHWEST OF INTERSTATE 44 CONTINUE TO BE THE MOST LIKELY
LOCATIONS TO SEE THE GREATEST ICE ACCUMULATIONS...IN EXCESS OF A
QUARTER TO HALF INCH...THROUGH SATURDAY MORNING. ACCUMULATION
POTENTIAL JUST TO THE SOUTH AND EAST...ALONG THE INTERSTATE 44
CORRIDOR ITSELF...WILL BE DEPENDENT ON HOW FAR SOUTH THE FREEZING
LINE PROGRESSES AND HOW LONG IT REMAINS IN PLACE BEFORE MOVING
BACK TO THE NORTH.

WIDESPREAD RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 3 TO 5 INCHES...WITH LOCALLY HIGHER
STORM TOTALS LIKELY...WILL AFFECT EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN
ARKANSAS INTO SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY. DESPITE THE ONGOING
DROUGHT CONDITIONS...AMOUNTS OF THIS NATURE COULD LEAD TO BOTH
RIVER AND AREAL FLOODING. IT IS ALSO NOT OUT OF THE QUESTION THAT
ISOLATED FLASH FLOODING COULD OCCUR...ESPECIALLY IN CONJUNCTION
WITH ANY THUNDERSTORMS THAT MAY DEVELOP ACROSS FAR SOUTHEAST
OKLAHOMA SUNDAY AND MONDAY.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PLANNING STATEMENT...
THE POTENTIAL REMAINS FOR SIGNIFICANT ICE ACCUMULATIONS ACROSS
PARTS OF NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. THERE IS ALSO
HIGH CONFIDENCE THAT HEAVY RAIN AND FLOODING WILL IMPACT PARTS OF
EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN ARKANSAS LATER THIS WEEKEND.
PREPARATIONS THAT REQUIRE LONGER DURATION LEAD TIMES SHOULD
ALREADY BE UNDERWAY. CONSIDER BEGINNING SHORTER LEAD TIME
PREPARATIONS SOON. CONTINUE TO MONITOR FORECASTS AND EVALUATE
FORECAST TRENDS.
