While many people are breathing a sigh of relief because of the break we have received from winter weather, the sunshine could bring in other possible problems.
As meteorologist John Boyer told FOX23, fires are a problem that this high winds could bring.
A wind advisory has been issued for northeast Oklahoma beginning at 9 this Sunday morning. Tulsa and the surrounding areas are under a red flag warning.
Most of northeast Oklahoma is under a fire weather watch.
Dozens of viewers called FOX23 and said smoke could be seen from Interstate 44 and Town West Saturday afternoon.
That red flag warning and fire weather watch is in effect from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m., and the wind advisory is in effect from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. for most of northeast Oklahoma.
Winds are expected to be 20 to 30 mph and gusting to 40.
Low humidity, strong winds, warm temperatures and a lack of recent rain all contribute to fire dangers.
Firefighters say conditions today Sunday will be prime for grass fires.
