Scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop Sunday afternoon in eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas as low-level moisture deepens. The storm activity should increase into Sunday evening as a deepening low pressure system tracking across Kansas accelerates a cold front through the area. While instability will be limited, an isolated severe storm or two is possible as very strong winds aloft will enhance the storm gust potential. Storms in western Arkansas should move out of the region around or a little after Midnight.
The arrival of drier air into eastern Oklahoma is expected to be delayed until we are past peak heating on Sunday. That will limit the the fire weather potential some. However, there is an abundance of dry fuels in the region and a significant fire or two may still be possible in the more humid air. Drier air will begin to arrive in eastern Oklahoma toward sunset on Sunday evening and enhance the fire spread potential for a few hours...especially along and west of Highway 75. Fire concerns will actually increase on Monday behind the cold front throughout the region. An elevated fire spread potential is expected on Monday in pats of eastern Oklahoma as gusty west and northwest winds force drier air back into the area. Some sunshine will offset the cooler air and contribute to the potential. As always, care should be taken with any fires on windy days this time of year.
