...Gusty Winds to Create Elevated Fire Danger Wednesday...

A deepening surface low pressure center moving east across
northern Illinois Wednesday will produce strong southwest winds
across the Quad State region. The winds will gust 30 to 40 mph at
times. This will cause some loose objects to blow around, such as
Christmas decorations. Motorists may find vehicles difficult to
handle in open areas exposed to the wind.

In addition, the strong southwest winds in combination with dry
vegetation across the region will create an elevated fire danger.
Conditions should improve significantly with sunset.

...Elevated Fire Weather Risk Wednesday...

Gusty winds of 20 to 30 mph with higher gusts to around 35 mph
combined with a very dry air mass will result in an elevated fire
danger risk Wednesday.

Relative humidity levels will fall into the 20 to 35 percent
range. Winds will shift from the southwest to west and northwest
during the day Wednesday as a dry cold front pushes across the
region.

These weather conditions along with very dry grasses and
underbrush from an ongoing drought could result in the easy
ignition and rapid spread of fires.

309 AM CST Tue Dec 12 2017

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Cooler temperatures and less strong winds are expected this
afternoon...which will bring slightly improved wild fire
conditions for today compared to the breezy...warm and extremely
dry conditions observed on Monday. Even so...humidity levels will
remain below 30 percent during the warmest part of the day. As a
result...the wild fire danger will remain high for all of Arkansas
for Tuesday.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday Through Monday

Overall the wildfire danger over Arkansas will remain high due to
the extended period of low rainfall. Winds will increase again
from the southwest for Wednesday...along with warmer temperatures.
Near Red Flag conditions may be seen again on Wednesday
afternoon. Outdoor burning is strongly discouraged...and most of
the state is now under a burn ban.

Rain chances do return Friday...but only light rain may be
possible. Slightly better rain chances arrive Sunday...with the
potential for a bit more significant rainfall. Until widespread
significant rainfall is observed however...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.
