Rainy Mother's Day closes out an increasingly wet weekend

Mainly dry weather Thursday through Saturday under partly to mostly sunny skies.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy. Lows in the mid 60s.

This morning temperatures will be in the 50s.

What's more concerning is the potential for severe storms on Saturday afternoon and evening.

Tonight will be clear with lows in the mid 50s and north winds will be 10 to 20 miles per hour.

That's going to pose a problem when a low pressure system moves along the front - bringing plenty of rain this Mother's Day weekend and beyond.

Friday will be windy in Oklahoma City with a high temperature near 87 degrees and wind gusts up to 44 miles per hour, the National Weather Service reports. Highs will reach to near 80, about 5 degrees cooler than yesterday and about 5 degrees above normal.

There is a marginal risk for severe thunderstorms through tonight.

WARMING WEEKEND OUTLOOK: A ridge of high pressure slowly tries to build into the region for the weekend, helping to boost temperatures for the first half of the weekend.

Tuesday - A chance of showers and thunderstorms.

Tuesday there will be times of clouds and sun with a pop up afternoon shower or thunderstorm. Temperatures fall back into the middle to upper 60s.

Wednesday night - A chance of showers and thunderstorms. Our high temperatures on Wednesday will be in the mid to upper 70s. Lows in the mid 50s to mid 60s. Highs will climb to near 90 on Saturday, about 15 degrees above normal. The rest of next week high temperatures will be in the lower to mid 70s. A chance of scattered rain showers with occasional thunderstorms is expected on most areas in the morning and late night.
