Statewide Discussion: 

No significant fire activity anticipated today.  Long duration rains with some respectable totals provided a wetting opportunity for fuels across the size classes.  Fog across much of central and eastern Oklahoma will eventually lift, but the burning period will be significantly compressed with fine fuels remaining well above critical values. 

Fine fuels in the Panhandle and northwestern Oklahoma will become receptive by early afternoon with dew point temperatures 35°-45° facilitating relative humidity values 22-35%.  Winds out of the south around 10 mph with limited gust potential and temperatures in the mid-70’s under sunny skies will promote limited fire danger; however the burning period today will be compressed.

 County Burn Bans: All county level burn bans have been lifted.

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).
