Strong winds and high fire danger Thursday

Posted: Updated:

By News9 Meteorologist Carrie Rose

Strong winds continue to affect much of Oklahoma Thursday after several blustery days. 

A dryline is moving eastward Thursday afternoon through west Oklahoma, shifting the winds to the west and southwest at 15 to 25 mph and gusting up to near 30 mph.  East of the dryline, winds are from the south at 15 to 25, gusting up to around 30 mph. 

Because of the low relative humidity, hot afternoon temperatures in the upper 80's and 90's, and gusty winds, western Oklahoma will remain under a Red Flag Warning until 9 p.m. Thursday night.

Parts of eastern Oklahoma will remain under a Wind Advisory until 7 p.m. Thursday.
