Through 12 PM… a large cluster of showers with embedded thunderstorms continues across much of western Oklahoma as an upper level disturbance is forced northeastward around the base of an upper level low pressure system. This activity will continue to spread north and east over the next couple of hours…affecting mainly northern and central Oklahoma. While most of the activity is expected to remain below severe criteria…some of the stronger storms could produce marginally severe hail and gusty winds. The greater severe threat is expected to unfold late this afternoon into this evening…as instability builds ahead of a developing dryline over western Oklahoma and northern Texas. Any storms that develop along or ahead of this dryline will have the potential to quickly become severe…with large hail and damaging winds being the main threats. You are encouraged to review your severe weather safety plan and stay on top of weather information throughout the day.
