THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF NORTHERN...
WESTERN...CENTRAL...AND SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA...AND WESTERN NORTH
TEXAS.

.DAY ONE...THROUGH TONIGHT...

.THUNDERSTORMS...
THERE IS A RISK FOR SEVERE STORMS ACROSS OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN
NORTH TEXAS.

LOCATION...
A SLIGHT RISK IS LOCATED NORTH OF A LINE FROM NEAR CHEROKEE TO BLACKWELL.
A MARGINAL RISK SURROUNDS THE SLIGHT RISK AND IS LOCATED EAST OF

TO PAULS VALLEY... TO HOLDENVILLE LINE... INCLUDING ALL OF NORTH TEXAS.

TIMING...
THE MOST LIKELY TIME FOR SEVERE STORMS WILL BE FROM 3 PM UNTIL 10 PM.

IMPACTS...
LARGE HAIL UP TO THE SIZE OF TENNIS BALLS...DAMAGING WIND GUSTS UP
TO 70 MPH...AND HEAVY RAINFALL THAT COULD LEAD TO FLASH FLOODING
WILL BE THE MAIN CONCERNS. THERE IS ALSO A VERY LOW RISK OF
TORNADOES.

DISCUSSION...
THE ATMOSPHERE WILL BECOME UNSTABLE THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING
ALONG AND AHEAD OF A DRYLINE ACROSS WESTERN OKLAHOMA...AND
PORTIONS OF WESTERN NORTH TEXAS. A WEAK MID LEVEL TROUGH IS
EXPECTED TO LIFT OVER THE REGION THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING... WHICH
COULD RESULT IN A FEW STORMS INITIATING ALONG AND AHEAD OF THE
DRYLINE. IN ADDITION... A WEAK OUTFLOW BOUNDARY LOCATED ACROSS
PORTIONS OF NORTHERN INTO CENTRAL OKLAHOMA MAY ALSO ACT AS A FOCUS
FOR THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT THIS AFTERNOON. THE THREAT OF SEVERE
WEATHER MAY CONTINUE THROUGH MUCH THE EVENING HOURS...BUT WIDESPREAD
THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE IS NOT ANTICIPATED.

.SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT STATEMENT...
STORM SPOTTER GROUPS AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PERSONNEL ACROSS THE
RISK AREA SHOULD PREPARE FOR SEVERE WEATHER OPERATIONS THIS AFTERNOON
AND THIS EVENING.

.HEAVY RAINFALL...
SEVERAL LOCALIZED AREAS HAVE ALREADY RECEIVED AN ABUNDANT AMOUNT
OF RAINFALL OVER THE PAST SEVERAL DAYS. THE THREAT OF LOCALIZED
FLASH FLOODING WILL CONTINUE WHERE THUNDERSTORMS MANAGE TO
DEVELOP.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY...

.THUNDERSTORMS...
THUNDERSTORMS WILL REMAIN POSSIBLE INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK. STRONG
TO SEVERE STORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE ACROSS AT LEAST PARTS OF THE
AREA EACH DAY. HOWEVER...THURSDAY HAS THE GREATEST POTENTIAL FOR
WIDESPREAD SEVERE WEATHER.

.HEAVY RAIN...
