Showers and thunderstorms are forecast across Oklahoma for much of the upcoming work week.

The National Weather Service said a low pressure system over West Texas and high pressure developing over the central Gulf Coast will force a lot of moisture to move north toward Oklahoma.

Chances of showers and thunderstorms will be in the state's forecast for most of the remainder of the week.

High temperatures throughout the week will be mainly in the mid 80s to lower 90s, with lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

Another round of showers and thunderstorms will be in the forecast over the weekend as a cold front approaches from the northwest on Friday and moves across the state Saturday into Sunday. Drier and cooler air will then filter into the state behind the front.

Tuesday will be mostly cloudy with a chance of showers and thunderstorms. The Oklahoma Panhandle will be partly cloudy and dry. Highs will be in the lower 80s to lower 90s.
