Rain Sunday night ends fire threat, opens the door to warmer temps

After a fire in Beaver county burned nearly 30,000 acres of land Saturday and Sunday, rain is helping to control that fire and add much needed moisture to pre-emergent fuels statewide. 

Weatherwise, look for periods of rain overnight Sunday into Monday morning. Streets may be wet Monday morning, however most of the rain will move east by the morning drive. Look for sunshine in the afternoon with warmer highs in the low 70s.

Tuesday will be sunny with more mild temps in the mid 70s, but that warmup will provide instability for some evening storms, especially in the southern half of Oklahoma. 

Look for even more rain, several inches worth, by the end of the week with cooler temps into the following weekend.
