    Default It's turned to be warm / It's turned warm (about weather)

    Are both variants OK to talk about a change of weather we have had?
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Only the second one is possible.

    It's turned warm = It was previously cold and it has (probably recently) become warm.
    It's turned out warm = We weren't sure what the weather would be like today but it has transpired that it is warm.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Informally, 'It's got warmer' is possible too.
