An elevated fire weather danger is forecast across much of eastern Oklahoma and west central Arkansas. Gusty north to northwest winds, between 20 and 30 mph, and lower humidity behind a cold front will elevate the fire spread potential. In the wake of cool high pressure that will be in place through the middle of next week, strong south winds and warmer temperatures will yield elevated to near critical fire weather conditions to close out the upcoming work week.
