Danger of Wild Fires Covers Much of Oklahoma- The Latest Map

Tue, 14 Jan 2014 06:22:53 CST

Danger of Wild Fires Covers Much of Oklahoma- The Latest Map Substantial rainfall is not in the forecast over the next seven to ten days for Oklahoma- and as a result, fire danger continues to be an issue across Oklahoma and will enhance again Tuesday afternoon. Two of the main ingredients will be prime for wildfires: low relative humidity and strong wind gusts.

Relative humidity values will range from 10 to 20% in western Oklahoma and wind gusts are expected from the northwest at 35 to 45 mph between 9 and 5 p.m.

The Fire Zone shows the area under the highest risk for wildfires. Any wildfire that forms tomorrow will likely become out of control quickly. (The map above references "tomorrow" which is really Tuesday)

The drought situation continues in western Oklahoma. The short term forecast doesn't look good as significant rainfall isn't showing up over the next 7 to 10 days.

While Tuesday will have the highest fire danger, the concern will last through the week into the weekend.
