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

DISCUSSION...
SOUTH-SOUTHWEST WINDS GUSTING BETWEEN 25 AND 30 MPH WILL BE COMMON
THROUGH THIS AFTERNOON ACROSS PORTIONS OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA. THE
WINDS COMBINED WITH VERY LOW HUMIDITY IN THE 15 TO 25 PERCENT
RANGE AND MUCH WARMER TEMPERATURES WILL BRING AN ELEVATED FIRE
SPREAD POTENTIAL...PARTICULARLY WEST OF A LINE FROM MCALESTER TO
JAY. THE FIRE DANGER WILL BE MORE LIMITED ELSEWHERE DUE TO LIGHTER
WIND SPEEDS...HOWEVER VERY DRY AIR WILL BE IN PLACE. THE FIRE
THREAT WILL SUBSIDE AFTER SUNSET AS WINDS DIMINISH.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
THURSDAY...VERY HIGH FIRE WEATHER POTENTIAL.
FRIDAY...THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL.
SATURDAY...THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL...VERY HIGH FIRE WEATHER POTENTIAL...HIGH WIND POTENTIAL.
SUNDAY...THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL...HIGH WIND POTENTIAL.
MONDAY...HIGH WIND POTENTIAL.
TUESDAY...NO HAZARDS.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
STRONG SOUTH WINDS THURSDAY WILL ONCE AGAIN RAISE FIRE WEATHER
CONCERNS. THERE WILL BE A SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS IN
ASSOCIATION WITH AN UPPER DISTURBANCE AND WEAK FRONT
FRIDAY...MAINLY OVER FAR NORTHEAST OK INTO NORTHWEST ARKANSAS.
THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL INCREASE OVER THE WEEKEND WITH THE NEXT
STRONGER FRONT TO IMPACT THE REGION. THERE WILL BE SOME SEVERE
WEATHER POTENTIAL WITH STORMS ALONG THE FRONT SUNDAY...HOWEVER A
SIGNIFICANT SEVERE WEATHER EVENT IS NOT EXPECTED.
