TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The National Weather Service says gusty winds, warm temperatures and low humidity are creating a limited danger of wildfires in eastern Oklahoma and northwestern Arkansas.

Forecasters in Tulsa say southerly winds are expected to gust at between 30 to 35 mph Sunday afternoon. Temperatures will be in the upper 50s to low 60s and humidity is forecast to fall to 35 percent to 40 percent range. Forecasters say humidity levels will be low enough to warrant the risk that any wildfire will spread rapidly.

There is a slight chance of showers in the region Monday morning, but dry and mild conditions are expected to prevail through the upcoming week. Temperatures are forecast to warm well above normal by next weekend.
