much of Eastern Oklahoma.

.DAY ONE...This evening and Tonight.

FIRE WEATHER DANGER.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Northeast Oklahoma into far Northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing...improving after sunset.

DISCUSSION...
Gusty southerly winds and humidity values of 25 to 35 percent
will support rapid fire spread to any ongoing wildfires.
Fire weather conditions will slowly improve after sunset.

Spotter Activation Not Expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.
FRIDAY...No Hazards.
SATURDAY...High Wind Potential.
SUNDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...High Wind Potential.
MONDAY...High Wind Potential.
TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Warm temperatures and breezy winds will maintain the potential
for rapid fire spread on Friday.  Saturday will see an increase
in after humidity values which will help lower the fire weather
potential. A strong storm system passes on Sunday with isolated
thunderstorms possible across southeast Oklahoma through western
Arkansas.  Further west gusty winds and drier conditions will raise
fire weather concerns Sunday afternoon, and fire weather will
remain a concern through Monday as temperatures cool only
slightly behind the departing storm system.
