Over the weekend, wind will be the big story with gusts over 40 mph possible, along with an increased fire threat.

Clouds will increase on Saturday with highs reaching into the middle to upper 60’s. Also, south winds will increase through the day at 20-35 mph during the afternoon.

By Sunday, clouds and moisture will be on the increase, along with south winds continuing at 20-30 mph. Some drizzle will be possible through the day across Central and Eastern Oklahoma. Otherwise, it will be partly to mostly cloudy with highs in the 60’s and 70’s.
