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...Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...Late Morning.

DISCUSSION...
At least limited fire weather dangers will exist today across
Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas. Breezy southwest winds
will shift out of the west and then northwest during the day as a
cold front pushes through the region. These winds combined with
above seasonal average temperatures...minimum relative humidity
values less than 25 percent for most locations and ongoing dry
conditions will increase fire concerns through sunset. The
multiple wind shifts today could create difficulties for any
ongoing wildfires. After sunset wind speeds should begin to
decrease while relative humidity values recover.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY...No Hazards.
SATURDAY...Fire Danger Potential.
SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Breezy southerly winds and warmer temperatures return Saturday
ahead of a low pressure system forecast to move across the region
Sunday. Conditions ahead of this system on Saturday will aid in
increasing fire weather concerns again for Eastern Oklahoma and
Northwest Arkansas. Rain chances look to become possible Saturday
night and Sunday as the system moves through the region. Greater
chances for precipitation look to be across Southeast Oklahoma
into Northwest Arkansas.
