...Elevated Fire Danger Today...

The combination of strong gusty winds and dry vegetation will
result in an elevated fire danger today across the Quad State
region. Relative humidity will also be quite low and may even
approach Red Flag criteria this afternoon, particularly over the
Ozark foothills of southeast Missouri.

These weather conditions along with very dry grasses and
underbrush could result in the rapid spread of fires. Burn bans
are in effect for some counties and outdoor burning is highly
discouraged across the region. Check with local authorities for
the latest on area burn bans.

Conditions should improve significantly by sunset as winds
slacken and humidity recovers.

319 AM CST Wed Dec 13 2017

The combination of strong and gusty winds, low relative humidity,
and dry surface fuels will lead to elevated fire danger this afternoon
across central and east central Missouri as well as parts of
southwest Illinois.

Southwest winds will become westerly and increase by late morning
to 15 to 25 mph with gusts of 30 to 35 mph. The wind will remain
strong and gusty through the afternoon as it shifts to the
northwest. Temperatures well above seasonal average will contribute
to low relative humidity with values less than 30 percent in the
afternoon.

These weather conditions combined with very dry grasses, dry leaf
litter, and dry underbrush could result in the rapid spread of
fires. Therefore, outdoor burning is highly discouraged today.
Care should be taken with open flames and the disposal of
cigarette butts.

...Approaching Redflag Fire Weather Criteria this Afternoon...

The combination of low fuel moisture...afternoon relative
humidity between 26 and 30 percent and strong southwest winds will
bring conditions near Redflag criteria across all of northeast
Arkansas and the Bootheel of Missouri this afternoon.

A burn ban remains in effect for several counties across northeast
Arkansas. Outdoor burning is not recommended today across all of
northeast Arkansas due to the elevated fire weather conditions.

Weather conditions will improve early this evening as the passage
of a cold front increases the relative humidity and diminishes the
winds.

... Elevated Fire Weather Risk Today ...

Gusty winds of 15 to 25 mph with higher gusts to around 30 mph
combined with a very dry air mass will result in an elevated fire
danger risk today.

Relative humidity levels will fall into the 25 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.

...High Fire Danger Today...

High fire danger is once again expected today across western
Missouri and eastern Kansas. Sustained winds of 20 to 25 mph with
gusts exceeding 30 mph are expected, which combined with
extremely dry surface fuels, will result in an elevated fire
danger risk across the area. These conditions will be favorable
for the rapid spread of any grass fires that ignite. As a result,
outdoor burning is highly discouraged today.

FIRE WEATHER DANGER.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Southeast Oklahoma into northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing.


DISCUSSION...
There will continue to be limited fire weather danger into the
early evening hours with relative humidity values increasing from
the current 20 to 30 percent range.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Spotter Activation Not Expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday.
WEDNESDAY through MONDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Fire weather danger will be a concern on Wednesday as relative humidity values
drop into the 20 to 30 percent range across the region as a cold front
moves into the area increasing the winds out of the west-northwest. While it
does not look like Red Flag Warning criteria will be met across a large area,
conditions will need to be monitored closely.

The next chance of rain will come Saturday night into Sunday as a storm system
lifts northeast out of northern Mexico and across the Southern Plains.

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.
