Thunderstorms Continue Through Midnight, Some Severe (2/28/2012)


AS A DRYLINE MOVES OVER WESTERN PARTS OF OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN NORTH TEXAS…VERY STRONG WESTERLY WINDS WILL BE SEEN. THE STRONGEST WIND THROUGH THE EARLY EVENING HOURS WILL BE ACROSS NORTHWEST AND WEST-CENTRAL OKLAHOMA, FROM CHEYENNE AND CAMARGO, UP THROUGH WOODWARD, BUFFALO, FREEDOM, AND ALVA. SOME WIND GUSTS AROUND 50 MPH ARE POSSIBLE. THERE WILL ALSO BE REDUCED VISIBILITIES ACROSS WESTERN OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN NORTH TEXAS DUE TO BLOWING DUST.

FARTHER EAST TOWARD NORTH-CENTRAL AND CENTRAL OKLAHOMA, IT WILL CONTINUE TO BE WARM, HUMID, AND BREEZY THROUGH THE EARLY EVENING HOURS. SCATTERED SHOWERS AND STORMS THAT ARE TRYING TO DEVELOP OVER PORTIONS OF SOUTH-CENTRAL KANSAS WILL TRY TO DEVELOP DOWN INTO FAR NORTHERN OKLAHOMA BETWEEN 5 AND 7 PM. THIS TREND MAY CONTINUE THROUGH THE EVENING AS STORMS TRY TO DEVELOP FARTHER SOUTH WITH TIME. WHEN A STORM DOES FORM, IT WILL MOVE QUICKLY TO THE NORTHEAST AND MAY BECOME STRONG ENOUGH TO PRODUCE DAMAGING WIND GUSTS AND LARGE HAIL. THE THREAT OF STRONG AND SEVERE STORMS IS EXPECTED TO MOVE OUT OF CENTRAL OKLAHOMA INTO EASTERN OKLAHOMA TOWARD OR SHORTLY AFTER MIDNIGHT
