Discussion...
a colder airmass will settle across eastern Oklahoma and northwest
Arkansas tonight into Saturday, but we will see just a glancing
blow of the cold air. An upper level disturbance will result in
some light rain or drizzle late Saturday night into Sunday, and
temperatures may be cold enough for some light freezing rain in
parts of far northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas.

Once this system moves out, warm and dry weather will take over
for next week. Model low level temperature progs support near
record high temperatures by next Thursday and Friday, and
increasing winds by that time will also raise the fire danger.

Stayed close to guidance temperatures the next couple days, then
went at or Above All guidance most of next week as is typical with
these cold seaosn warm spells.
