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

.DAY ONE...This Evening and Tonight.

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


DISCUSSION...
Light southerly winds occasionally gusting to 15 miles per hour,
coupled with warm and dry conditions, will create a limited fire
danger threat through the early evening, mainly west of Highway
75. Once the sun sets, winds will diminish and relative humidity
values will increase rapidly effectively ending the fire danger
threat.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.
FRIDAY...Very High Fire Danger Potential.
SATURDAY...No Hazards.
SUNDAY AND MONDAY...Very High Fire Weather Potential.
TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Dry and mild conditions are expected for the next couple of days
with a warming trend into the weekend. Fire weather concerns will
begin to increase on Friday, however the greater threat will likely
develop Sunday and Monday as gusty southwest winds combine with
unseasonably warm temperatures.

Widely scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible Tuesday
into Wednesday as an upper level disturbance approaches from the
southwest with increasing low level moisture. Rainfall amounts are
currently expected to remain light.
