Isolated thunderstorms late tonight into Sunday morning

Fire weather in the west

Saturday First Alert Weather 6 PM

LAWTON, Okla. (TNN) -

Today our highs are a bit cooler in the 50s with lingering fog. Areas in the far western portions of Texoma are experiencing critical fire weather due to a dry line that has set up in the Panhandles. Dew points are in the single digits with strong winds and brush is very dry due to the late winter conditions. Avoid burning if possible. Late tonight into early Sunday morning we could see a few strong thunderstorms in the southeast due to the cold front moving through the area. The biggest threats will be quarter-sized hail and frequent lightning.

Looking ahead we will have cooler temperatures Sunday as well as Monday as an upper-level trough moves through the region. The closed low could allow for widespread showers on Monday, as well as the possibility of winter precipitation if the temperatures drop low enough in the early morning. The rest of the week is moderate after this system moves out.
