Fire Weather Planning Forecast
National Weather Service Tulsa OK
401 AM CST Tue Feb 21 2017

RED FLAG...NONE.

.DISCUSSION...
The fire danger will ramp up fairly quickly over the next couple
of days. Strong south winds return on Wednesday for NE OK, mainly
north of I-44, and get stronger and more widespread on Thursday.
The strong winds and favorable fuel conditions will yield near
elevated fire spread potential Wednesday afternoon across portions
of NE OK, and elevated fire spread potential across much of
eastern OK and northwest AR on Thursday.
