This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of the Missouri
Ozarks and extreme southeast Kansas.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

  Limited Non thunderstorm wind risk.

DISCUSSION...

West and northwest winds will gust up to 30 to 35 mph this
afternoon and evening after the passage of a cold front. Winds
will diminish somewhat by early evening.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday.

Northwest winds will gust up to 30 to 40 mph Tuesday. Gusty
daytime winds will occur to some degree again Wednesday and
Thursday. Grass and brush fires will more easily ignite and spread
in drier and windier than normal conditions.

Potential for patchy frost exists early Wednesday morning as
temperatures fall into the lower to middle 30s. At this time it
appears valleys and locations sheltered from the wind will have
the best chance for frost.

Temperatures this weekend will dip into the upper 20s to lower
30s with a much better potential of a frost or freeze.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for a Large Part of Arkansas.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon through Tonight

Locally strong winds will be seen across mainly northern Arkansas
this afternoon through the overnight hours. A dry cold front will
move through the state later today and tonight bringing more
widespread strong winds in its wake.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday Through Sunday

Strong northwest winds will be seen nearly statewide Tuesday in the
wake of the cold front that is set to move through the state Monday
evening and overnight.

Recent rainfall has slightly improved wildfire danger, but given
windy conditions and dry air in place at the surface, wildfire danger
will once again be elevated Tuesday afternoon. Wildfire danger will
continue to be a concern through mid week as afternoon RH values
drop into the 30 percent range or lower.

Cold temperatures will be in the forecast Tuesday night with some
patchy frost possible. Another more intense surge of cold air will
make its way into the state later this week with a freeze possible
across parts of the state Friday and Saturday night.

.Spotter Information Statement...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
