ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER DANGERS OVER EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST
ARKANSAS.

UPPER LEVEL NORTHWESTERLY FLOW IS FORECAST TO DEVELOP OVER THE
CENTRAL UNITED STATES FOR THE UPCOMING WEEK INTO NEXT WEEKEND.
THIS WILL ALLOW FOR A SERIES OF DRY FRONTAL BOUNDARIES TO PUSH
ACROSS THE REGION...WITH TEMPERATURES LOOKING TO REMAIN CLOSE TO
THE SEASONAL AVERAGE.
