Two upper level waves will interact with a warm and very moist air mass to generate thunderstorms through Saturday. Lightning and torrential rainfall that could cause flash flooding are the primary threats...with a secondary threat of damaging winds. Turn around, don't drown!
TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Officials say Oklahoma is at a very high risk for wildfires Tuesday because of warm, windy and dry conditions.
On Monday, firefighters from several agencies battled large grassfires in Washington, Wagoner and Okmulgee counties. The Tulsa World reports that a mobile home was damaged near Coweta in a fire, as were two barns and several parked vehicles.
No injuries were reported in Monday's fires.
The National Weather Service predicts high temperatures Tuesday in the 70s with winds gusting up to 30 mph.
Burn bans are currently in place in four Oklahoma counties: Alfalfa, Grady, Jefferson and Tillman.
