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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

FIRE WEATHER DANGER.
RISK...Limited to near Elevated.
AREA...Eastern Oklahoma and Western Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing.

DISCUSSION...

Gusty south to southwest winds to 30 mph, combined with above
average warmth and low humidities, is yielding near elevated fire
weather conditions this afternoon, especially across northeast
Oklahoma and far northwest Arkansas. These conditions, combined with
the very high fire danger due to the recent drought and cured
vegetation, will lead to the potential for quick fire spread.
Conditions will improve this this evening as humidities increase and
winds subside. Light to moderate rain will also overspread the area
tonight, which could bring a short-lived improvement to the fire
danger.

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

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

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Fire danger will increase again Thursday, as warm temperatures and
increased southerly winds develop ahead of a strong cold front. Very
strong northwesterly winds and sharply colder temperatures will
follow the front set to move through the region Thursday night.
