Today's temperatures, after starting on the chilly side, will warm into the low and mid 60s. Winds will stay relatively light from the southeast. Clouds and rain chances will gradually increase into the afternoon and evening. Today's best rain chances stay in far western Oklahoma.

Tomorrow, the storm system out west finally moves into the state bringing widespread chances. While amounts appear light, a quarter to a half-inch at most, majority of the state will see rain.

Looking down the road, fire danger goes back up on Wednesday and Thursday as temps rise into the lower 80s coupled with strong south winds. Another potentially strong storm system arrives next weekend. Watching that one carefully.
