.DISCUSSION... HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN SEATED ACROSS THE
REGION...LEADING TO CONTINUED HOT AND DRY CONDITIONS. HUMIDITY
LEVELS WILL REMAIN ABOVE CRITICAL LEVELS...BUT WITH INCREASING
TEMPERATURES AND NO RAIN VEGETATION WILL BEGIN TO DRY OUT MORE
QUICKLY ESPECIALLY IN PLACES LIKE NORTHEAST ARKANSAS THAT HAVE
NOT SEEN MUCH RAIN LATELY. THUS WHILE WINDS AND HUMIDITY LEVELS
WILL REMAIN BELOW CRITICAL THRESHOLDS...FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS
WILL BE ON THE INCREASE THROUGH THE WEEKEND AND INTO EARLY NEXT
WEEK. IT IS POSSIBLE RELIEF WILL COME DURING THE MID TO LATTER
PART OF NEXT WEEK THOUGH...BOTH IN THE FORM OF COOLER
TEMPERATURES AND POSSIBLY SOME WIDESPREAD RAINFALL. TIME WILL
TELL THOUGH.
