1:00 PM CDT Oklahoma Severe Weather Update (5/8/2013)


Strong to severe thunderstorms are expected to develop this afternoon over western Oklahoma and western North Texas. Additional development may occur farther east along the remains of an outflow boundary, extending from near Cheyenne Oklahoma to just north of Oklahoma City.

Storm development is likely to begin between 2 PM and 4 PM, and these storms may become severe within an hour. The storms are then expected to move mainly toward the east, reaching the I-35 area early this evening. If storms do form along the outflow boundary, those storms could affect the Oklahoma City and Enid areas during the middle to late afternoon.

The strongest storms may produce 2 inch diameter hail and winds up to 75 mph. Isolated tornadoes are possible, especially over far western Oklahoma and western North Texas. Stay alert for severe weather this afternoon and evening, especially across the western half of Oklahoma and western North Texas. I will post updates as soon as I get them.
