Dry and windy conditions are expected for Tulsa and nearby counties increasing the chance of wildfires.
The National Weather Services has issued a Red Flag Warning that goes into effect at noon until 7 p.m.
Some of the areas under the warning are Osage, Washington, Pawnee, Creek and Tulsa counties.
Three conditions are considered before a Red Flag Warning is issued.
- Gusty winds
- Low humidity
- Dry fuels or vegetation to be in place
Avoid any outdoor burning because the dry, warm and humid conditions are a dangerous combination.
Also, make sure to put out cigarettes before throwing them away. Never mow or trim dry grass, and don't pull your vehicle in a dry grass area.
It's always a good reminder to make sure you don't have any extra dry fuels present around your home or property that could catch fire.
