A warming trend will continue across Oklahoma on Thursday.

The National Weather Service said temperatures will reach above-average levels and the humidity will increase over the next few days. A couple of approaching storm systems may be able to tap into the additional moisture and produce showers and thunderstorms in parts of Oklahoma early next week, forecasters said.

On Wednesday, skies were mostly clear and temperatures ranged from 61 degrees in McAlester, Muskogee, Ponca City and Tulsa to 75 degrees in Guymon. The high in Oklahoma City and Stillwater reached 63 degrees, the weather service said.

Skies should be mostly sunny Thursday and Friday with temperatures reaching the 60s and 70s on Thursday and the 70s on Friday. Lows Thursday night should fall into the 30s and 40s.

Partly cloudy conditions are expected Saturday through Monday, with a chance of thunderstorms statewide on Monday. Temperatures should reach the 70s Saturday and Sunday before ranging from the upper 30s in the Panhandle to the low 50s elsewhere Saturday night, forecasters said. Lows Sunday night should range from the 40s in the Panhandle to the 50s and 60s elsewhere.

Highs should range from the 50s in the Panhandle to the mid-70s in the southeast on Monday. Lows should range from the middle 30s in the Panhandle to 50s and 60s elsewhere.
