Farther west, across much of western Oklahoma into western North Texas, scattered strong thunderstorms will develop through the evening. Additional storms over the Texas Panhandle and South Plains will also move into the body of Oklahoma and adjacent parts of North Texas. Through 10 PM, there will be a threat of large hail and damaging wind gusts along with very heavy rain. Damaging wind and heavy rain will be the primary concerns thereafter.
