Gusty northwest winds and decreased moisture behind a cold front overnight will lead to a continued, albeit limited, risk of rapid fire spread this afternoon. The area of greatest concern will be across parts of southeast Oklahoma and west central Arkansas, where afternoon temperatures will be warmer.
A cold front that moved through the area overnight will drop temperatures today and tomorrow to below normal levels. A hard freeze is expected for a good chunk of the area tonight, with slightly warmer but still sub-freezing temperatures again tomorrow night. The cooldown will be short lived, however, as above normal temperatures return Sunday and continue into the early part of next week. Hope you like roller coasters!
