Statewide Discussion:  Widespread rainfall occurred yesterday and overnight across the state.  While very strong winds are forecast for southwest Oklahoma and the Panhandle, high relative humidity readings in these areas will mitigate the opportunity for extreme fire behavior.

 

There are no Burn Bans currently in effect in Oklahoma.  For the most current information on Burn Bans click on the following link:
