From News9 Meteorologist Stephanie Malone...

Oklahoma City had record breaking cold this morning with 22° beating out the old record of 27° set back in 1938.  But the cold is just a memory with temperatures already heating up.  Highs will climb into the lower 60s this afternoon under sunny skies with winds from the south at 10 to 20.

Lows will be mild tonight in the 40s with highs tomorrow climbing into the upper 70s.  Thursday is the next chance for some thunderstorms.  But with gusting winds and warm temperatures, southwestern Oklahoma will have a high risk of fire danger. 

Friday through the weekend will have highs in the upper 60s and 70s with another chance for thunderstorms on Saturday and Sunday.
