*Warm temps near 80 today and on Wednesday will bring in strong winds and an increase in the fire danger. A FIRE WEATHER WATCH IS IN EFFECT OUT WEST and a Rangeland Fire Danger Forecast has been issued just east of the western counties. We are not included as of now.

*A weak cold front is forecast to push into NW Oklahoma today but will stall out and move back north as a warm front. We expect a stronger front to push in late Wednesday night into Thursday morning. The wind gradient will remain fairly tight so expect winds to remain pretty strong.

*As stated yesterday, we request that there be NO controlled burning since wind gusts will exceed 25 mph for the next several days. If the winds die down enough and you decide to do a burn, CALL DISPATCH at 580-234-3473 and let them know, then make sure you get the edges of that burn put out completely as it will only take a spark from an ember to cause a major problem. Just use extreme caution, common sense, and be careful. Winds will gust higher than 25 mph through Wednesday so I would hold off burning for now. We would appreciate it.

*Overall, we’ll be ok so here is your forecast from the NWS/NORMAN;

Today- Sunny. Highs around 80. Southwest winds 15 to 20 mph with gusts up to 35 mph.

Tonight- Mostly clear. Lows around 50. South winds 5 to 10 mph.
