...Isolated Severe Storms Possible Sunday / Increased Fire Danger Monday...

This Outlook is for Northwest and West Central Arkansas as well as
much of Eastern Oklahoma.

.DAY ONE...Tonight.
No hazardous weather is expected.

DISCUSSION...
Low-level moisture will begin to increase tonight ahead of a
developing weather system to the west.  Thunderstorm chances
are expected to hold off until Sunday afternoon.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.
SUNDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Limited Fire Weather Potential.
MONDAY...Elevated Fire Weather Potential.
TUESDAY through THURSDAY...No Hazards.
FRIDAY...High Wind Potential.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop Sunday afternoon
in eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas as low-level moisture
deepens.  The storm activity should increase into Sunday evening
as a deepening low pressure system tracking across Kansas accelerates
a cold front through the area.  While instability will be limited,
an isolated severe storm or two is possible as very strong winds
aloft will enhance the storm gust potential.  Storms in western
Arkansas should move out of the region around or a little after
Midnight.

The arrival of drier air into eastern Oklahoma is expected to
be delayed until we are past peak heating.  That will limited
the the fire weather potential some.  However, there is an
abundance of dry fuels in the region and a significant fire or
two may still be possible in the more humid air.

An elevated fire weather potential is expected on Monday behind
the cold front as gusty west and northwest winds force drier air
back into the area.  Some sunshine will offset the cooler air and
contribute to the potential.
