Much Needed Rains Fall Across the State, but Burn Bans Still Active in Cimarron, Texas, Beaver, Dewey and Major Counties
According to the Latest Fire Situation Report, the welcome rain over the weekend has helped with the Oklahoma fire danger.

Statewide Discussion: Rainfall associated with several rounds of storms occurring Friday through this morning provided wetting rains in several locations prompting a welcomed recovery in live fuel moisture; however the southwest (generally along and south of I-40 and west of I-44) have lagged well behind in rainfall with several locations posting 15-23 days since wetting rains.

Additionally, the spotty nature of rainfall amounts in the Oklahoma Panhandle counties has resulted in several dry pockets remaining, and while the some of the looming wildfire threat has diminished some areas remain a concern.

Today: The highest fire danger indices today will reside in southwestern Oklahoma where very hot temperatures and low afternoon relative humidity values will promote receptive fuels. Storm chances in the Oklahoma Panhandle will present some threat for lightning ignited fires especially of those storms are isolated in nature. Elsewhere in Oklahoma, the fire danger threat has been greatly diminished with prompting resurgent green-up and live fuel moisture improvements.
