This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for a Large Part of Arkansas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

The fire danger will remain high today. However, higher dew points
are anticipated today along with lighter winds than yesterday. High
pressure will be in control and no rain is expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday Through Wednesday

Overall the wildfire danger over Arkansas will remain high due to
the extended period of low rainfall. Outdoor burning is strongly
discouraged...and most of the state is now under a burn ban.

Good rain chances return Saturday night into Sunday morning...with
half to one inch of rainfall expected in many areas. However...until
widespread significant rainfall is observed...expect the wild fire
danger to remain at high levels given the severe to extreme drought
currently in place.

.Spotter Information Statement...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
