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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

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

Elevated fire weather conditions will continue through the afternoon
north of Interstate 44. Temperatures in the mid to upper 60s, 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 danger 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
gusty southerly winds. This, and the ongoing dry ground conditions
will create 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
sweep through the area.  Temperatures will again top out in the
70s on Friday, however the relative humidity values will fall
between 15 and 20 percent 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 Friday.

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.
