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

Much of Oklahoma received 0.50” of rain over the weekend with some southern tier counties receiving around 1.00”. Cooler temperatures and mid-range relative humidity will moderate fire danger in large part. South winds today will initiate drying of fuels this afternoon, however moderated fire danger is expected through the first part of the week.

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).
