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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

POOR VISIBILITY.
RISK...Elevated.
AREA...Southeast Oklahoma and West Central Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing.

DISCUSSION...
Areas of fog will persist early this morning in sheltered valley
locations across west central Arkansas and southeast Oklahoma.
Local visibility of a half-mile will be possible before the fog
dissipates by mid-morning.

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

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

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
A stronger storm system will approach the region Friday...with
unseasonably warm temperatures and windy conditions expected ahead
of a cold front forecast for Friday night. The combination of
warm temperatures...gusty south to southwest winds and cured
fuels will likely result in dangerous fire weather conditions for
much of Eastern Oklahoma Friday, particularly in areas along and
west of Highway 75. Gusty north winds will follow the cold front
on Saturday, maintaining a limited fire spread threat despite
much cooler temperatures.
