Most of Oklahoma is under a Red Flag Warning until at least 7 p.m.

The National Weather Service issued the warning because of the windy, dry conditions across northern, central and western Oklahoma.

The warming trend continues for the start of the work week.

Temperatures will average 10 to 20 degrees above normal today and tomorrow; a stark contrast from our temps averaging 30 to 40 degrees below normal last Monday and Tuesday.

Winds will increase out of the southwest raising the fire danger to “very high” or “extreme.”

A front will move through our state late tomorrow and high winds will follow around 30 to 40 mph.

The front will also drop our high temperatures to the 50s for Wednesday.

Temperatures will rebound and the 70s will return by Saturday.

Another storm system will impact the second half of the weekend.

Right now models indicate the storm will bring cold rain on Sunday possibly transitioning to a winter mix for Monday morning.

This storm is still over the Pacific Ocean so stay tuned for updates.
