UNDATED (AP) -- A fire weather watch is in effect Monday as more warm, dry weather descends on Oklahoma.

The National Weather Service says the watch area includes all of Oklahoma except the far western Panhandle and far southeastern corner. The watch will continue Tuesday for all of eastern Oklahoma except the southeast.

High pressure built into the state Sunday behind a cold front, returning southerly winds and gulf moisture to Oklahoma. Temperatures will remain unseasonably warm today with highs tomorrow in the 80s over much of the state.

Another cold front will move into the plains states on Wednesday, bringing a slight chance of showers to the state. Showers will remain in the forecast Thursday as the front moves across the state.
