TULSA, OK -- The potential for grass and brush fires is high across Oklahoma through Saturday.

As winds increase and temperatures climb, conditions across the state could have Oklahoma issuing a Red Flag fire alert.

News On 6 meteorologist Dick Faurot explains what a 'high fire danger' means and what factors play into a decision to issue a warning.

Faurot also says it is critical to not burn anything outdoors during times of "high fire danger." 

Faurot also suggesting two web sites:

1.  Oklahoma Wildfire Management

2.  Oklahoma Forestry Services and Wildfires

Already, a number of counties across Oklahoma have issued burn bans.
