From the National Weather Service, Norman:

A front will stall near the Red River. Southerly winds above this front will allow for widely scattered showers and a few storms by early to mid afternoon.

Widespread severe weather is not expected, but a few strong storms may produce gusty winds up to 40 mph and hail up to quarter size.

The better chance for stronger storms will generally remain east of a line from Seminole to Ada to Madill.

Another windy day is forecast for Sunday as low pressure strengthens to our west.

This combined with rather warm and dry afternoon conditions will lead to

enhanced wildfire potential over much of western and central Oklahoma,

and western north Texas.

And following is the forecast for Oklahoma City from the National Weather Service, Norman:

Today A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms.  Partly sunny, with a high near 57. North wind 13 to 16 mph, with gusts as high as 23 mph.
