Statewide Discussion: A dry day across Oklahoma today following a bit of moisture moving out in southeast counties as a cold front moves through.  The highest fire danger will again be focused on the western tier of counties and the Panhandle area while somewhat moderated from recent days.

 

The highest fire danger today will be west of a line from Woods County to Cotton County where afternoon relative humidity values may fall below 25% for a brief time this afternoon.  By the peak of the burning period this afternoon, winds will be north-northwest 15-19 mph gusting to 25 mph in the Panhandle.  After a cold start this morning, temperatures will warm into the low 50°’s in the northern counties to the mid-60°’s along the Red River.  Expected fire behavior should provide opportunity for successful initial attack.

 

Drier weather and lower relative humidity will move into eastern Oklahoma this afternoon; however winds will generally be less than 10 mph with limited gusts providing for high probability for successful initial attack.
