TULSA, Oklahoma -

Most of the state will be hot, windy and a little on the muggy side on Saturday.

Highs will reach the mid-to-upper 80s and low-to-mid 90s by afternoon. Winds will be breezy out of the south at 15 to 30 mph and humidity values will increase as well.

"A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for our Kansas counties until 10 p.m.," said WARN Team Meteorologist Mike Grogan.

"Main risk is large hail, but high winds and an isolated tornado can't be ruled out. The threat for severe storms in eastern Oklahoma is much lower this evening, but can't be ruled out."

Sunday is a little different. Severe weather is a little more likely in western Oklahoma late Sunday afternoon and evening. The dryline will set up in western Oklahoma, we'll have a big upper-level system moving in and a lot of instability in place.

Coverage of storms won't be widespread, but any storms that develop will pose a risk of large hail, damaging wind gusts and a tornado or two. The threat for tornadoes goes down as the storms march east toward central Oklahoma late Sunday into Monday.

The cold front will overtake the dryline overnight Sunday into Monday, dragging a line of storms through the state Monday morning. Strong storms will be likely, but the threat for widespread severe storms does not.

Rainfall totals look good as the front passes through.
