Statewide Discussion:
No fire control issues are anticipated in Oklahoma today.

Warm temperatures will continue today, however a boost in sky cover and dew points around 60° will keep relative humidity values above levels of concern. Rainfall is expected to move into the Panhandle later today moving into northwestern Oklahoma this evening.

Remember… ONLY YOU can prevent wildfires! Enjoy Oklahoma’s wildlands responsibly.

Report any suspicious wildland fire activity on the Arson Tip Line: 1-866-662-7766 (1-866-NO ARSON).
