The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag fire warning for the western half of Oklahoma and says the fire danger is critical.

The warning runs from noon until 7 p.m. Monday.

News On 6 meteorologist Alan Crone says windy and warm conditions are expected Monday with highs soaring back into the lower or mid-90s.

The warning area extends westward from to the Texas state line and from the Kansas state line to the north to the Oklahoma-Texas border to the south.

Much of that area is also under a burn ban issued by Governor Mary Fallin earlier this month.

Rain could provide some relief by the end of the week as Crone explains in his weather blog on NewsOn6.com.
