This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of northern...
western...central...and southern Oklahoma...and western north
Texas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight...

.Thunderstorms...
There is a Slight Risk of severe storms this evening and overnight
across far northern Oklahoma.

Location...
The Slight Risk area covers locations north of a line extending
from Woodward to Ponca City. A Marginal Risk covers locations a
little farther south, down to Leedey, Kingfisher and Stillwater.

Timing...
After 7 PM.

Impacts...
Winds of 70 mph and golfball-size hail.

Discussion...
Scattered to numerous storms, associated with a cold front, are
expected to move into northern Oklahoma this evening and
overnight. Shear and instability will be sufficient to support
severe storms capable of damaging wind gusts around 70 mph, along
with hail around the size of golfballs. Larger hail cannot be
ruled out near the Kansas border. Storm movement will be generally
east and southeast and may persist through the night.

.SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT STATEMENT...
Storm spotter groups and emergency management personnel across
the risk areas should be prepared for severe weather operations
this evening and overnight.

.Fire Danger...
An elevated fire danger will be seen across western and central
Oklahoma today. Even though relative humidity values will not fall
significantly this afternoon, hot temperatures, a strong south
wind, and stressed vegetation will increase the fire danger in
areas that have not seen rainfall in several weeks.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday....

.Thunderstorms...
Severe thunderstorms, along with high rain totals, are possible
Friday through Saturday night. A Slight Risk covers much of
northern and central Oklahoma Friday and Friday night, with a
Marginal Risk covering much of the region Saturday and Saturday
night. The primary concerns will be large and damaging hail along
with the potential for excessive rain.

Scattered thunderstorms will continue to be possible Sunday
through next Tuesday.
