BREAKING: Enid in high wind warning Thursday

ENID, Okla. — Enid will be in a high wind warning area until 3 p.m. today, according to Mike Honigsberg, certified director of Enid/Garfield County Emergency Management.

The National Weather Service forecasts winds 35 to 45 mph mainly through noon today, with gusts as high as 60 mph.

Officials at Oklahoma Forestry Services are urging residents to avoid outdoor burning this week due to the dry, windy conditions present over a large portion of the state.

Oklahoma State Forester George Geissler says the state has experienced a few weeks of moisture due to snowfall. But Geissler says warmer conditions have caused the state to dry out.

A series of cold fronts are predicted to move through the state with little to no moisture. Low relative humidity combined with higher temperatures and gusty winds means fires can ignite easily and will spread quickly. All outdoor burning is discouraged.
