From News9 Meteorologist Stephanie Malone...

Oklahomans have a warm and windy day ahead, with some places already experiencing wind gusts over 40 mph.  Temperatures are expected to get into the lower 70s this afternoon before a cold front sweeps the state from west to east.  With the cold front entering the state in the west, there will be a wind advisories fo the western portions of Oklahoma from 6:00 pm until midnight.  The warm temperatures and the wind will set up a chance for enhanced fire risk, especially in southwest Oklahoma where a Red Flag Warning has been issued from noon until 8:00 pm.

Tonight there will be a chance for some thunderstorms in the state, with a chance for some to produce hail and damaging wind in northeast Oklahoma. 

Tomorrow will be cooler with highs only making it into the upper 70s under partly cloudy skies with a northwest wind at 15 to 25 miles per hour.
