Warm, humid and occasionally stormy days lie ahead this week for Oklahoma.

The National Weather Service said southern sections of the state may see the best opportunity for rain as another storm system tracks through the region late Sunday and Monday. Moisture and winds will increase ahead of the system, but severe weather isn't expected.

On Sunday, skies were partly to mostly cloudy and temperatures ranged from 68 degrees in Hobart to 79 degrees in Ponca City and Tulsa. The high in Oklahoma City and Guymon was 75 degrees.

Skies should be mostly cloudy through Friday, with a chance of thunderstorms in all but the Oklahoma Panhandle on Monday. Temperatures should reach the 60s and 70s before falling back into the 40s and 50s Monday night.

Thunderstorm chances shift to the east on Tuesday, with partly cloudy conditions in western and central Oklahoma forecast. Highs should top out in the 70s, the weather service said.

A chance of showers and thunderstorms returns to western and central sections of the state on Wednesday and Thursday as a more potent spring storm system sets up over the region.

Temperatures should top out in the 70s and 80s on Wednesday before ranging from the middle 40s in the Panhandle to the 50s and 60s elsewhere.

Highs on Thursday should cool into the 60s and 70s and temperatures from the 30s in the Panhandle to the lower 60s in the east are possible Thursday night, forecasters said.

Skies should clear from west to east on Friday and temperatures should cool down. Highs should reach the 60s and low 70s with a continued chance of precipitation in eastern Oklahoma. Lows should range from the low 30s in the Panhandle to the middle 50s in southeastern Oklahoma, forecasters said.
