much of Eastern Oklahoma.

FIRE WEATHER DANGER.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Northeast Oklahoma.
ONSET...Afternoon.

DISCUSSION...
Southerly Winds will increase this afternoon primarily

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Southerly winds will remain gusty Thursday through Friday, and
increase further Saturday into Sunday.  A cold front will push
through the region on Sunday with strong northerly winds
following the frontal passage.  The increase in wind speeds will
also support an increase in wildfire spread potential, primarily
Thursday, and Saturday and Sunday.  Widespread rainfall on Friday
will briefly limit any fire weather concerns.
