Oklahomans will continue to enjoy warm, dry weather for the most
part on Thursday.
The National Weather Service said there will be an opportunity
for thunderstorms across southeast Oklahoma as moisture from the
Gulf of Mexico moves northward into the region, but chances will be
slight. Partly cloudy conditions will continue elsewhere.
On Wednesday, skies were clear to partly cloudy and temperatures
ranged from 86 degrees in McAlester to 94 degrees in Guymon. The
mercury peaked at 89 degrees in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, the
weather service said.
Southeastern Oklahoma will see a slight chance of thunderstorms
on Thursday, but skies should be partly cloudy and conditions dry
elsewhere. Temperatures should top out in the 80s and 90s and dip
into the 60s and 70s Thursday night.
Storm chances may increase in the Oklahoma Panhandle and
southeastern sections on Friday. Highs in the 80s and 90s and low
temperatures in the 60s and 70s are forecast.
Skies should be partly to mostly cloudy on Saturday, with a
slight chance of storms in western and central Oklahoma and a
better chance in the east, forecasters said.
Temperatures should reach the 80s and 90s on Saturday and fall
into the 60s and 70s Saturday night.
There will be a chance of storms statewide on Sunday, with highs
reaching the 80s and 90s and lows in the 60s and 70s expected.
A slight chance of thunderstorms remains in the forecast for
