...FIRE DANGER TODAY ACROSS PARTS OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA...
...GUSTY WINDS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE AFTERNOON...

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.
SIGNIFICANT WINDS.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Eastern Oklahoma.
 ONSET...Ongoing...Remaining gusty into the evening hours.

FIRE WEATHER DANGER.
RISK...Elevated.
    AREA...Much of Eastern Oklahoma...west of highway 75 and
           northwest of I-44.
    ONSET...Late Morning.


DISCUSSION...
Unseasonably warm temperatures and windy conditions are expected
ahead of a cold front and strong upper system that will move
through the region late tonight. The combination of warm
temperatures, gusty south to southwest winds and cured fuels will
result in dangerous fire weather conditions for much of Eastern
Oklahoma today. Areas of particular concern are locations along
and west of Highway 75, and northwest of Interstate 44. Limited
convergence along the front will preclude rain chances across the
area. As the front enters northeast Oklahoma late tonight, winds
will shift to the northwest with gusts between 30 to 35 miles an
hour possible during the pre dawn hours.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.
SATURDAY...Very High Fire Weather Potential...High Wind Potential.
SUNDAY through THURSDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
The front will continue to move through the rest of eastern
Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas Saturday with gusty northwest
winds overspreading the region. Despite cooler temperatures behind
the front, fire danger will expand over the area for much of
Saturday as drier air is ushered in. Wind gust between 40 to 45
miles an hour are likely into the early afternoon across northeast
Oklahoma. Elsewhere, 30 to 40 mile an hour gusts are likely for
much of the afternoon. Winds will subside for the latter half of
the weekend as surface high pressure builds over the plains.

Another front will to move through early next week. However, rain
chances associated with the boundary are minimal.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for a large part of Arkansas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Breezy south and southwest winds will be common later today and
tonight as a new storm system approaches from the Plains States.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

A cold front and upper system will move through the region on

will be a marginal risk of severe storms mostly over northeast
Arkansas, with damaging winds and large hail the main threats. The
cold front will push the convection out of Arkansas later Saturday.
Otherwise, gusty winds will continue on Saturday, as the front moves
across the region. The winds will create hazardous conditions on
area bodies of water. High profile vehicles may have some
difficulty, especially on elevated roadways. The winds will diminish
later Saturday.

Through the remainder of the period, the threat of hazardous weather
is low.
