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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

POOR VISIBILITY.
RISK...ELEVATED.
AREA...ARKANSAS RIVER VALLEY IN WESTERN ARKANSAS.
ONSET...ONGOING.

FIRE WEATHER DANGER.
RISK...LIMITED.
AREA...NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA.
ONSET...EARLY AFTERNOON.

DISCUSSION...
PATCHY AREAS OF FOG WITH VISIBILITIES OF LESS THAN ONE MILE HAVE
DEVELOPED OVER PARTS OF THE ARKANSAS RIVER VALLEY IN WESTERN
ARKANSAS. THESE CONDITIONS WILL REMAIN COMMON DURING THE EARLY
MORNING HOURS BEFORE WINDS AND TEMPERATURES BEGIN TO INCREASE.

SOUTHWESTERLY WINDS OF 10 TO 20 MPH ON THE BACKSIDE OF AN EXITING
UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL HELP TRANSPORT MUCH WARMER
TEMPERATURES INTO THE REGION TODAY. WARMER TEMPERATURES COMBINED
WITH DRIER AIR AND BREEZY WINDS WILL AID IN A LIMITED FIRE WEATHER
DANGER OVER PARTS OF THE REGION...MAINLY ALONG AND WEST OF HIGHWAY
75 IN NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA THIS AFTERNOON. FIRE CONCERNS SHOULD
DECREASE THIS EVENING AND OVERNIGHT AS RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES
RECOVER.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
SUNDAY...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL...HIGH WIND POTENTIAL.
MONDAY...THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL...HIGH WIND POTENTIAL.
TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY...NO HAZARDS.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
THUNDERSTORM CHANCES RETURN TO EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST
ARKANSAS SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY AS ANOTHER UPPER LEVEL LOW
PRESSURE SYSTEM APPROACHES THE SOUTHERN PLAINS AND A FRONTAL
BOUNDARY BECOMES NEARLY STATIONARY OVER THE REGION. INSTABILITY
INTERACTING WITH THE BOUNDARY WILL ALLOW FOR AT LEAST A LIMITED
SEVERE WEATHER POTENTIAL. THE UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE IS FORECAST
TO EXIT THE REGION BY THE MIDDLE PART OF THE UPCOMING WEEK...WITH
HIGH PRESSURE SETTING UP OVER THE PLAINS FOR THE SECOND HALF OF
THE WEEK.
