A warm front moved through the state overnight, causing temperatures to increase through the morning hours. At 8:30 AM our temperature in OKC was already warmer than or normal daytime high.

For the rest of your Friday, we have a spring-like setup in store. A dryline, followed by a cold front, will move from the west to the east today. This will spark more thunderstorm activity in eastern Oklahoma.

The storm zone, for counties in yellow, is where we expect the limited threat for small hail and gusty winds. Rainfall totals in the southeast will range from .5" to 1".

Skies will begin to clear out this afternoon and highs will climb into the upper 50s and even mid 60s in southern Oklahoma.

The weekend looks beautiful with highs in the upper 50s Saturday followed by upper 60s on Sunday.
