Replacing The Chill With Some Heat

With temperatures on Monday struggling to get into the 40s and 50s, a nice warm up is in store for the rest of the week.  Tuesday will feature highs in the 60s and lower 70s, with 70s common statewide on Wednesday.  Our warmest day this week will be Thursday with 80s and 90s likely across Oklahoma. As temperatures  go up, so will the fire danger.  A fire weather watch has already been issued for Thursday afternoon in western Oklahoma:

A weak cold front will slip into the state Friday with a decrease in temperatures, but it will still be mild.  You can see the drop in temps from Thursday to Friday on this graphic:

The front that will bring the drop in temperatures will stall out and begin to lift north as a warm front on Saturday.  As it does, there will be a low chance for a few thunderstorms Saturday.  Low storm chances stay in the forecast for Sunday and Monday as well.  We may not see much in the way of rain over the weekend, but the humidity will be higher across much of the state so the fire danger should decrease a bit.
