THIS OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHWEST AND WEST CENTRAL ARKANSAS AS WELL AS
MUCH OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

DISCUSSION...
LOW TEMPERATURES TONIGHT ARE FORECAST TO FALL INTO THE TEENS
ACROSS MUCH OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS ALONG WITH
CLEARING SKIES AND LIGHT WINDS. THESE CONDITIONS WILL HELP TO
CREATE WIND CHILL VALUES IN THE UPPER SINGLE DIGITS TO MID TEENS
OVERNIGHT INTO FRIDAY MORNING FOR MOST LOCATIONS.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION NOT EXPECTED.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
FRIDAY...NO HAZARDS.
SATURDAY...HIGH WIND POTENTIAL. FIRE DANGER.
SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY...NO HAZARDS.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
SOUTHERLY WINDS RETURN SATURDAY WITH GUSTS IN THE 15 TO 35 MPH
RANGE ACROSS THE REGION AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT. GUSTY
WINDS COMBINED WITH NEAR SEASONAL AVERAGE TEMPERATURES AND ONGOING
DRIER CONDITIONS WILL AID IN INCREASING FIRE DANGERS OVER EASTERN
OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS. THE COLD FRONT IS FORECAST TO
MOVE INTO THE REGION SUNDAY WITH POSSIBLE RAIN CHANCES. ANOTHER
COLD FRONT LOOKS TO MOVE THROUGH DURING THE FIRST PART OF NEXT
WEEK WHICH COULD BRING ANOTHER SHOT OF MUCH COLDER TEMPERATURES.
