    The nice, warm weekend will come with an increased risk for wildfires. The biggest concern is for West Texas, where breezy weather will make it easier to spark a wildfire.

    NBC 5 Meteorologist Rick Mitchell says the wildfire threat for North Texas will be elevated over the weekend, mainly west of Interstate 35.
