Statewide Discussion:
There is a possibility of elevated fire danger today in western Oklahoma following a cold front pushing storms chances with some severe potential across Oklahoma. Dryline formation will result in relative humidity values rapidly falling to near 20%, winds 15-22 mph and temperatures 73°-78° west of U.S. Hwy. 81. Locations that receive little or no precipitation ahead of or along with the frontal passage should expect elevated fire danger today as rapidly falling relative humidity will promote very dry fuels. At this time, the highest probability will lie in furthest west tier of counties.

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).
