Strong thunderstorms have developed this afternoon within a very unstable airmass stretching from western North Texas northward into parts of western Oklahoma. At 230 PM, the strongest storm was located near Lake Kemp in Baylor County in western North Texas. This storm is capable of producing marginally severe hail along with gusty winds to 55 mph along with frequent lightning and heavy rainfall. Due to slow storm motions, localized flooding may also be an issue. Other weaker storms are beginning to develop in the same area. Any storm that develops may quickly become severe, but due to the pulse nature of storms, any severe weather will likely be short lived.
Additional storms will likely develop across northern and central Oklahoma through the afternoon as surface heating continues. These storms will have a better chance of become severe with larger instability in this region. Storms may eventually grow into a cluster with large hail and damaging winds continuing through the evening and possibly overnight.
