TULSA, Oklahoma -- The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Fire Alert for much of NE Oklahoma until 7 p.m. Monday.
A lingering drought and an unyielding heat wave have made Oklahoma more susceptible to grass and brush fires this year.
News On 6 Meteorologist Alan Crone says Monday's temperatures could soar again into the 108 to 110-degree range. Add strong southwest winds and the fire danger will remain high all day.
Crone says a weak boundary is located just north of the Oklahoma state line and will be sliding southward Monday night and early Tuesday morning.
This boundary will bring a chance of storms Monday evening and early Tuesday to the northeastern part of the state.
