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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

SIGNIFICANT WINDS.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing.

FIRE WEATHER DANGER.
RISK...Elevated.
AREA...Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing.

DISCUSSION...
Fire weather danger will remain elevated through the afternoon, as
low relative humidities and gusty west to northwesterly winds
persist behind last night`s cold frontal passage. The worst
conditions will be across Osage and Pawnee counties where dry
fuels remain and a burn ban continues. Winds will begin to
subside this evening, leading to a diminishing fire weather danger.


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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY...No Hazards.
SATURDAY...Thunderstorm  Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
SUNDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
MONDAY AND TUESDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Below normal temperatures will continue for the latter part of
the work week and into the weekend. A strong upper level storm
system will enter the Plains on Saturday and will offer chances
for widespread rain and isolated thunderstorms Saturday and
Sunday. Severe potential with this system appears low at this
time, although locally heavy rainfall will be possible. Rain will
diminish from west to east Sunday evening. More settled
conditions are anticipated for the start of the next work week.
