Warm temperatures and low afternoon humidity values will support
a limited risk of rapid wildfire spread this afternoon across
northeast Oklahoma. Winds will remain light which will reduce the
overall potential.

Panhandle region will move east overnight. Some of these storms
may hold together long enough to impact areas along and west of

expected.

Numerous showers and isolated thunderstorms will spread across the
region Saturday with decreasing rain chances by late Saturday
afternoon. Additional thunderstorm chances return late Sunday
afternoon into the evening hours along an advancing cold front.
The highest chances will be across western Arkansas into southeast
Oklahoma. A few of these storms may become severe before they
spread further south and east during the late evening hours. The
main severe threat appears to be large hail and damaging winds.
Dry and mild weather prevails through mid week with thunderstorm
chances returning mid to late next week.
