LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) -

For tonight, clear skies and mild with overnight lows falling into the low 70s. Winds will be out of the south 10-20 mph.

On Tuesday, a warm and muggy afternoon with highs topping out in the mid 90s. Winds will be out of the south at 15-20 mph with higher wind gusts. A dry line and shortwave trough will initiate scattered showers and thunderstorms mainly for areas west of I-44. This will bring some much needed rain to areas that are still under exceptional drought conditions. A few strong-to-severe storms are possible with the main threats including wind gusts up to 60 mph and hail up to the size of golf balls.

Temperatures will fluctuate from the low-to-mid 90s throughout the remainder of the workweek. Plumes of smoke from wildfires in New Mexico and Mexico will continue to allow a hazy appearance to the skies. A stray shower or storm can’t be ruled out later in the week. There will be a weak cold front that will move through on Saturday, which could allow hit & miss showers and storms to develop along the boundary.
