From News9 meteorologist Stephanie Malone...

We'll start the week off on a rainy note, with some showers already over a good part of central Oklahoma well before noon.  We'll have a good chance for thunderstorms this afternoon, with a risk for some severe storms.  Temperatures will be warm today, getting up into the upper 70s with strong south winds.

Tomorrow there will be a slight chance for rain in southeastern Oklahoma, and a risk for wildfires in western Oklahoma.  Tomorrow's highs will soar into the upper 70s before a strong cold front comes through the metro Tuesday and slams lows Wednesday morning down into the upper 20s.  The cold will stick around for the rest of the work week with lows in the upper 20s and 30s and highs only getting into the 40s.
