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 and Northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing.

FIRE WEATHER DANGER.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...Early Afternoon.

DISCUSSION...
Northerly winds will remain gusty into the morning hours Saturday
on the heels of the overnight cold frontal passage. Gusts in the
25 to 30 mph range can be expected this morning, with a decreasing
trend into the afternoon. Very dry air behind the front will
combine with the gusty winds to contribute to a localized uptick
in the fire weather concerns this afternoon.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.
SUNDAY...Winter Weather Potential.
MONDAY AND TUESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
WEDNESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
THURSDAY...Heavy Rain Potential.
FRIDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
An active weather pattern will persist well into next week,
featuring multiple opportunities for rainfall and perhaps some
isolated thunderstorms. Depending on how quickly rain spreads
into the higher terrain of northwest Arkansas on Sunday morning,
temperatures may be cold enough to support pockets of light
freezing rain. Toward the middle to latter part of next week, the
heavy rain threat will increase across parts of the area, as a
slow-moving front remains stretched across the region and deep
layer moisture increases substantially.
