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.
