For Monday night, temperatures are expected to drop sharply with a continuing chance for rain and perhaps even snow in northwestern Oklahoma. Temperatures are expected to dip as low as the upper 20s in the Panhandle. Southeastern Oklahoma will have lows in the mid-50s.

More rain is possible in eastern Oklahoma on Tuesday, while sunny conditions are to return in the west. Highs will range from the upper 40s in northwestern parts of the state to the low 60s in the southeast.

Clear to partly cloudy conditions are expected Wednesday, with highs in the 50s.
