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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

AREA...Northeast Oklahoma.
ONSET...This Afternoon.

Elevated fire weather conditions are forecast mainly along and
north of Interstate 44 Today. Afternoon temperatures in the upper
60s combined with very low humidity values between 15 and 25 percent
and southwest winds between 10 and 20 mph will yield conditions
conducive to fast fire spread. Conditions will improve after
sunset as temperatures fall and relative humidity values rise.

Spotter Activation Not Expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.
THURSDAY and FRIDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Very High Fire Weather
Potential...High Wind Potential.
SATURDAY and SUNDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
MONDAY...Very High Fire Weather Potential...High Wind Potential.
TUESDAY...No Hazards.

Fire weather will continue to be a concern Thursday and Friday especially
across northeast Oklahoma. On Thursday, temperatures are expected to soar
into the 70s across the region with the aid of a gusty southerly wind creating
a very high fire danger, mainly west of Highway 75 in eastern Oklahoma. Friday
looks to have the highest fire weather danger of the week as drier air moves
into the region behind a cold front that will be moving through the area on
Friday. Temperatures will again top out in the 70s on Friday, however the
relative humidity values will plummet to around 15 mph across portions of
northeast Oklahoma Friday afternoon. West-southwest winds of 10 to 20 mph
with higher gusts will aid in creating very high fire weather potential on

Thunderstorm chances will also be a concern Thursday Night into Friday
morning as a cold front moves through the region. As of now it looks like
the main threat for severe weather will be to the east of the area.

Additional thunderstorm chances are in the offing for Saturday night into
Sunday as the next storm system rolls through the region.
