Firefighters are bracing for a high risk of wildfires across the northern half of the state today.

Gusty winds combined with dry conditions are expected. Firefighters already are monitoring numerous smoldering fires.

Lightning sparked more than 15 fires last night near Amarillo.

The Texas Forest Service says two of the fires had grown to a thousand acres each.
