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.

National Weather Service maps detail the problems for the Panhandle and Southern Oklahoma just north of the Red River.

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