OKLAHOMA CITY -

Plan for a very windy day on Thursday. Winds will be very strong again tomorrow. The fire danger is high to extreme.

Temperatures will be in the 40s and 50s this afternoon, but the north wind will make for a colder feel. North winds will gust 45 to 50 miles per hour through the late afternoon. This is strong enough to cause some power outages and even some minor damage. High profile vehicles need to use caution on the roads through tomorrow afternoon.

Winds may also mean blowing dust out west! Lows tonight will drop into the low 30s.

Tomorrow look for highs only in the 30s and low 40s, but the north wind will keep wind chills in the 20s most of the day.
