A cold front that swept through Friday night and has ushered in some cooler air across the state. 

Saturday's afternoon high could be 20 degrees cooler than Friday's afternoon high. It is definitely a noticeable difference. Cooler air will stay in place through the weekend. Highs should be in the 60s again on Sunday. 

A rain jacket will be nice outer wear for this weekend and much of the coming week. Besides the cooler air, rain chances are rolling in and here to stay for the week.

Heavy and widespread rainfall is expected late Sunday across Green Country. 

Monday morning showers and storms will still be around but trying to move east and out of the state. 

A break in the rain will allow the atmosphere to start increasing in instability. Monday afternoon we are expecting another round of showers and storms. With the increase in instability, some storms could be strong and possible even severe. 

As of now, western Oklahoma looks to be more conducive for severe weather. 

Tuesday will also have a threat for stormy weather. This time, the threat is highest south of Tulsa.  Better chances for storms will be across southeastern Oklahoma. Rain and storms chances will continue through the end of our work week, although Monday and Tuesday look to have the highest threat. 

May is our wettest month of the year and with a week like this next one, you can see why.
