The possibility of wildfires is high in western Oklahoma through Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service’s Norman office. Hot, dry, windy weather means fire danger is “very high to extreme” late Wednesday morning through Wednesday evening, according to the office’s hazardous weather outlook. A red flag warning will be in effect from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday.
Wednesday evening will bring a slight risk of severe thunderstorms across western Oklahoma, with tennis ball-size hail, damaging winds and rains of 1 to 2 inches. Storms are most likely between 4-10 p.m. Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.
