Skies will be mostly clear and temperatures will be warm through the Labor Day weekend.

The National Weather Service said high pressure will be the predominant weather feature over Oklahoma on Sunday. Temperatures will be near normal under cloudless skies.

An upper level low pressure system off the southeast Texas coast is expected to drift slowly northwest, pushing moisture toward Oklahoma by early next week.

Some of the moisture may make it back into southern Oklahoma late this weekend to bring some clouds to southern sections of the state.

The low pressure system may move close enough to bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms by Tuesday. Chances of rain will increase later in the week as increasing moisture moves over the area.

Sunday will be mostly sunny with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s.

Skies will remain mostly clear on Sunday night. Lows will range from the upper 50s to mid 60s.

Skies will turn partly cloudy on Labor Day and there is a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms in southeastern Oklahoma. Highs will be in the upper 80s to mid 90s with lows in the 50s and 60s.

Tuesday will be partly cloudy with a chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs will be in the 80s and 90s with lows in the 60s.

Wednesday will be partly to mostly cloudy with a chance of showers and thunderstorms. Conditions will be dry in the Oklahoma Panhandle. Highs will be in the 80s and 90s with lows in the lower 60s to near 70.

Skies will be mostly cloudy in eastern Oklahoma and partly cloudy in the west on Thursday. There is a chance of showers and thunderstorms across the state. Highs will be in the 80s and 90s with lows in the upper 50s to lower 70s.
