Discussion...
scattered light rain showers will continue through
around sunrise...mainly across south central and
southeastern Oklahoma. Otherwise...clouds will continue
to decrease across the eastern half of Oklahoma today.

A trough moving across the northern rockies will push another
front into Oklahoma and North Texas on Sunday. Breezy conditions
across the northern half of Oklahoma will increase fire weather
conditions Sunday afternoon.

Strong and gusty northwest winds can be expected much of the day
Monday. Frequent wind gusts near 45 miles per hour are likely...especially
from middle morning through the middle to late afternoon. Although
afternoon highs will be in the 40s and 50s...low afternoon
humidity will combine with the strong winds to increase fire
weather conditions.

Warmer temperatures with less wind can be expected Tuesday into
Wednesday. Another weak front will provide some cooling to at
least the northern half of Oklahoma on Thursday.
