.DISCUSSION... GUSTY SOUTHERLY WINDS IN THE 20 TO 35 MPH RANGE
AND WARMER TEMPERATURES THIS AFTERNOON HAVE CREATED AREAS OF HIGH
TO VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER ACROSS PARTS OF NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA.
SOUTHERLY WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN BREEZY THIS EVENING AND
OVERNIGHT AHEAD OF A COLD FRONT APPROACHING THE REGION. THIS WILL
ALLOW FOR THUNDERSTORM CHANCES TO BECOME POSSIBLE OVERNIGHT
TONIGHT AND CONTINUE DURING THE DAY THURSDAY AS THE COLD FRONT
MOVES THROUGH THE REGION. A LIMITED POTENTIAL OF SEVERE WEATHER
WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH THE THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY. LARGE HAIL AND
STRONG WINDS LOOK TO BE THE MAIN HAZARDS. BEHIND THE COLD FRONT
THURSDAY...BREEZY NORTHERLY WINDS COULD CREATE AREAS OF FIRE
WEATHER DANGER OVER PARTS OF NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA AGAIN.
