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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.


FIRE WEATHER DANGER.
RISK...Limited.
 AREA...Northeast Osage and Pawnee Counties.
 ONSET...Afternoon.

DISCUSSION...
A much drier airmass will move in behind the front this afternoon.
Despite recent rainfall, fine fuels will quickly dry out as winds
become more gusty from the north. This combination of fine fuels,
lower relative humidity, and temperatures warming into the upper
50s to lower 60s will allow for limited fire weather concerns this
afternoon across portions of northeast Oklahoma, specifically
Osage and Pawnee Counties where conditions will be best met.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.
SUNDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Very High Fire Weather Potential...High Wind Potential.
MONDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Very High Fire Weather Potential...High Wind Potential.
TUESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Winter Weather Potential...High Wind Potential.
WEDNESDAY...Winter Weather Potential.
THURSDAY and FRIDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
An active weather pattern is forecast for the remainder of the
weekend and into much of next week. Gusty south winds will develop
Sunday into Monday ahead of a cold front, along with increasing fire
weather concerns. Shower and thunderstorm chances return by Sunday
night into Tuesday, with the best chances being later Monday night
into Tuesday as the cold front moves through the region. Depending
on the timing of the exiting precipitation, and the arrival of the
cold air, there could be a window for light wintry precipitation
Tuesday night into Wednesday. Continue to monitor latest forecasts
for updates.
