OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Warmer, drier conditions are expected across Oklahoma today.

The National Weather Service says a storm system that affected the state for a couple of days finally pulled away yesterday afternoon.

According to the weather service overnight temperatures will be cold and northeastern Oklahoma could see frost.

Temperatures should remain warm all week in advance of another storm system that may bring a threat of severe weather to the state.

Skies were mostly cloudy early yesterday then slowly cleared from west to east. Daytime highs ranged from 50 degrees in Muskogee to 66 in Altus, Guymon and Lawton. The mercury peaked at 51 degrees in Tulsa and reached 57 in Enid and Oklahoma City.

Mostly sunny skies will return as will temperatures in the 60s and 70s. Forecasters expect lows to be in the 40s statewide tonight.

Clouds will make a quick return ahead of the storm system tomorrow and bring a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms to far western sections of the state. Highs should climb into the 70s.
