Fire Danger High- But Not Red Flag High on Thursday- the Latest Maps!

Thu, 16 Jan 2014 05:42:28 CST

Fire Danger High- But Not Red Flag High on Thursday- the Latest Maps! Weather conditions for today across Oklahoma have the state set up to face midday and afternoon wildfire conditions. The graphic above shows that virtually every county in the state have conditions aligned to produce wildfires if a spark occurs during the daytime hours.

Alan Crone with the News on 6 sums it up well in his Thursday morning blog- "The fire danger is very high today across most of the state with critical fire weather spreads across central and western OK. Criteria for Red Flag Warnings will not be met regarding the daytime temperatures, but humidity and wind issues will be primed for erratic wild fire growth. You are encouraged to refrain from outdoor burning." Click here for Alan's complete Weather Blog for today- Thursday, January 16.

Jed Castles with News9 has produced a graph that shows what Alan is saying about Red Flag conditions not likely to be met today- but portions of western Kansas will face those Red Flag conditions.The third (the bottom) graph shows the none day outlook for fire danger across Oklahoma and with no change to a wetter pattern across Oklahoma- it appears that we are in danger of slipping back further into drought in the state.

We will get our next weekly drought monitor update later this morning- and it will likely show Oklahoma crossing back across the fifty percent level of some level of drought covering more than half of the state.
