Several hazards expected today as storm system approaches the area.
Scattered showers will be possible this morning with
thunderstorms developing later this afternoon...and again tonight
as the upper low pressure center moves through. Strong to severe
storms are expected with both rounds of thunderstorms, however,
greatest chance for severe will be during the afternoon with the
primary threat being large hail and damaging winds. While the
tornado threat remains low for much of the area, the greatest
potential looks to be across the Ark-La-Tex region. In addition to
severe thunderstorms, we will see non-thunderstorm winds gusting
of 40 to 45 mph this morning ahead of the incoming storm system.
Fire will also be a concern across portions of central OK as the
dryline advances eastward.

on the horizon. The first of these will impact the region early
next week with another chance of showers and thunderstorms. The
second system looks to approach the latter half of the week, with
another chance for strong to severe storms.
