A deepening storm over the Rockies will help to increase the wind speed through Tuesday afternoon. On top of that, dry air from west Texas will flow into Oklahoma. The combination leads to an increased grass fire danger Tuesday afternoon. One limiting factor to the overall spread of grass fires will be the moist soil as parts of Green Country picked up more than two inches of rain over the weekend. But the south wind will mean a much warmer than average day. Highs Tuesday afternoon are expected to top out in the low 70s.
Wednesday morning, a cold front will race through the area. This front will come with little fanfare, meaning no clouds, or rain just a wind shift to the northwest. But the northwest winds will bring cooler air to Green Country for the rest of the week.
