From News9 Meteorologist Stephanie Malone...

Today and tomorrow will be especially warm for February, and will even feel like spring time.  But, we will also have extremely high winds from the south at 15 to 30 today and sustained winds tomorrow at 20-40 miles per hour.  But, with temperatures reaching the lower 70s and high winds Oklahoma is under potential fire danger.

Saturday temperatures will reach the upper 60s under partly cloudy skies and southerly winds 15 to 25. 

Sunday afternoon will also have highs in the 60s, but Sunday night will bring some much needed rain.  The rain is good, but with the rain comes the chance for some possible severe storms.  The main concern with these storms are hail and damaging wind.

Monday will give us a bit of a break, before another chance for rain Tuesday into Wednesday.
