Statewide Discussion:
No fire control issues anticipated today.

Snow across western Oklahoma and Panhandle with rain through central and southern Oklahoma will continue moving eastward providing relief from a brief period of elevated fire danger early in the week. Minimal to no precipitation is expected in northeast Oklahoma, however elevated relative humidity, ample sky cover and light north winds will suppress fire danger today.

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).
