EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Temperatures well above normal and breezy southerly winds will
prevail on Saturday.  These conditions will raise fire weather
concerns especially across northeast Oklahoma.  Breezy winds
continue on Sunday with increasing humidity values helping
reduce fire weather concerns. Thunderstorm chances gradually
increase late Sunday into Monday primarily southeast of
Interstate 44.  Rain chances will increase Monday into Tuesday
as a cold front moves through the region.  There remains
considerable uncertainty on the eventual axis of heaviest rains,
and portions of southeast Oklahoma through western Arkansas
may be nearer the corridor of heavier rains.  Dry weather
returns by mid next week.
