Fire danger increases into midweek

Warm temperatures until the end of the week when rain chances return

Sunday First Alert Weather 5:30 PM

LAWTON, Okla. (TNN) -

We are staying warm today with highs in the 60s and southerly breezy winds. Fire danger is elevated due to the windy conditions and low relative humidity. This will be the case into the middle of the week when fire danger becomes near critical on Wednesday due to very dry conditions and hot temperatures. Our highs will climb into the 80s and we will see stronger winds from the south.

Wednesday night into Thursday we will see a dry line and an upper-level low move into the area. This could kick off some isolated thunderstorms Thursday, but most of the storms will be on Friday. The cold front will move through Friday, dropping temperatures and creating widespread showers in most of the area, with the potential for some stronger thunderstorms. There is a possibility for lingering widespread rainfall during the weekend, with some locations to the northwest seeing snowfall in the Texas Panhandle, as some models have the weekend wetter. Most of us will likely see rain and lingering cloud coverage.
