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

.DAY ONE...Rest of Tonight.

AREA...Eastern Oklahoma.

Wind speeds have decreased this evening, however winds
between 10 and 15 miles an hour across parts of eastern Oklahoma
will help ongoing fires continue during the overnight hours.

Be mindful of any activities which may ignite a fire and quickly
report any wildfires to local officials.

Spotter Activation Not Expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.
FRIDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Very High Fire Weather
Potential...High Wind Potential.
SATURDAY and SUNDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
MONDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...High Wind Potential...Heavy Rain
TUESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
WEDNESDAY...Heavy Rain Potential.

Elevated fire weather conditions are anticipated to continue
Friday across Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas as gusty
southerly winds and warm temperatures remain over the area. One
limiting factor will be increasing moisture ahead of a frontal
boundary that is forecast to move into the region Saturday.

This frontal boundary is forecast to stall Saturday night and lift
back northward Sunday with an additional cold front looking to
slowly move across the region during the first half of next week.
The result will be continued thunderstorm chances developing
Saturday night and Sunday, with chances continuing through mid next
week over eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas. The potential for
multiple rounds of heavy rainfall exists, along with increasing
flash flood concerns. Uncertainties continue with exact amounts and
locations of heavy rainfall, as well as the potential for severe
weather over the weekend and into next week.

Continue to monitor latest forecasts as there is a potential for
multiple rounds of heavy rainfall that could lead to flooding
concerns Sunday into next week.
