1:45 PM Oklahoma Weather Update (5/1/2011)


Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to move across parts of the eastern two-thirds of Oklahoma and North Texas through late afternoon. Some of the storms may become strong or severe producing hail and gusty winds. Otherwise… hourly rainfall amounts of around a tenth of an inch or less will occur with most of the activity. However… higher amounts will be possible with the thunderstorms. Although conditions at the surface remain cool…an unstable Gulf air mass was in place above the ground. An upper level trough approaching from the west will provide lift for continued shower and thunderstorm development. Gusty northeast winds will feel cool…with temperatures mainly in the 40s and 50s.
