...FIRE DANGER TODAY AND WEDNESDAY...


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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

SIGNIFICANT WINDS.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Eastern Oklahoma.
ONSET...This Morning.

FIRE WEATHER DANGER.
RISK...Elevated.
AREA...Eastern Oklahoma.
ONSET...Late Morning.


DISCUSSION...
Southerly winds will increase today and temperatures will warm
into the 70s and 80s this afternoon. The warmer temperatures,
southerly winds gusting between 25 and 30 miles an hour will
combine with dry air already in place, resulting in elevated fire
danger.


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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday.
WEDNESDAY...Very High Fire Weather Potential...High Wind Potential.
THURSDAY and FRIDAY...No Hazards.
SATURDAY...Thunderstorm  Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
SUNDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
MONDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
A dry cold front will move across the area tonight, resulting in a
wind shift to the northwest and cooler temperatures. Despite
cooler temperatures Wednesday, lower relative humidity values
behind the front and gusty northwest winds will maintain elevated
fire danger, especially for parts of northeast Oklahoma during the
afternoon.

A strong upper level system and cold front still appear on track
to offer chances for widespread rain and thunderstorms this
weekend across eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas. The
potential for locally heavy rainfall exists with this system,
however the potential for severe weather is low at this time.
