...Increasing Fire Dangers Friday into Saturday...

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

.DAY ONE...This Evening and Tonight.

SIGNIFICANT WINDS.
RISK...Isolated.
AREA...Northeast Oklahoma
ONSET...Late Tonight.

DISCUSSION...
South to southeasterly winds 5 to 15 mph this evening across
Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas are expected to increase
late tonight into Friday morning as a frontal boundary lifts
northward through the region. Gusts up around 20 to 25 mph will be
possible across parts of Northeast Oklahoma by early Friday
morning. Slight chances for rain showers along with light drizzle
will also be possible overnight as the front lifts northward.

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...Very High Fire Weather Potential...High Wind Potential.
SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Winds will gust 30 to 40 mph Friday along with mild temperatures
across Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas. These conditions
will raise fire weather concerns especially along and west of
Highway 75 across Northeast Oklahoma. One limiting factor will be
increasing moisture keeping minimum relative humidity values
mainly above 50 percent.

A cold front will pass quickly through the region Friday night
with northerly winds increasing behind the front. Gusts of 30 to
40 mph are forecast to continue into Saturday. Drier air along
with the gusty winds will continue very high fire weather dangers
through Saturday afternoon over much of Eastern Oklahoma and
Northwest Arkansas. Again...the greater potential looks to be
across parts of Northeast Oklahoma. Winds subside Sunday with the
weather pattern currently appearing to remain rather tranquil for
most of next week.
