OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Temperatures will begin to warm across Oklahoma today and an outside chance of precipitation will linger for a few days.

The National Weather Service said high pressure will start to influence the region and most areas will remain dry through the weekend. A weak weather disturbance is expected to move across the Plains tomorrow and possibly bring showers and thunderstorms to northern Oklahoma, but chances appear to be slight.

A stronger system is expected to barrel through the region late Sunday into Monday and Tuesday, possibly bringing severe weather to the state.

Yesterday, skies were partly to mostly cloudy with showers and thunderstorms developing along a cold front from central into southern Oklahoma. Temperatures ranged from 61 degrees in McAlester to 70 degrees in Altus, Frederick and Guthrie.

Skies should be partly to mostly cloudy today and tomorrow, with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms in northern Oklahoma both days.

Highs should reach the 60s and 70s both days and lows in the 40s and 50s are expected tomorrow night.
