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 risk of severe storms across portions of Oklahoma and
north Texas.

Location...
An enhanced risk is along and east of a line from Enid to Yukon to
Ardmore Oklahoma. A slight risk resides east of a line from
Cherokee to west of El Reno and Duncan Oklahoma to Henrietta
Texas up to the enhanced risk.

Timing...
The most likely time for severe storms will be from 4 PM to 4 AM.

Impacts...
Large, damaging hail, up to the size of softballs, and damaging
winds to 80 mph will be the primary concerns. There is a low
chance for tornadoes.

Discussion...
A dry line is expected to develop across portions of central and
southwest Oklahoma and western north Texas. Enough lift may
develop to overcome a cap leading to isolated to scattered storms
developing near the dryline late this afternoon and evening. If
these storms develop, they will likely become severe with large,
damaging, hail, possibly approaching the size of Softballs, and
damaging winds up to 80 mph. There will also be a low chance for
tornadoes with these storms since they will be more likely to stay
discrete.

The greater chance for storms will be this evening and overnight
near a cold front that will move across the area. These storms
would be more widespread and are expected to develop into one or
more line segments. Some of these storms could also become severe
producing large hail up to the size of golf balls and damaging
wind gusts to 80 mph. The potential for tornadoes will be lower
with the line of storms.

Thunderstorms will remain possible across parts of the area into
Sunday.

.SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT STATEMENT...

Storm spotter groups and emergency management personnel across the
risk areas should prepare for severe weather operations late this
afternoon into tonight.

.Heat...
Heat index values of 103 to 109 will be possible today across
portions of central and south central Oklahoma, and western north
Texas. If you are going to be outdoors, take steps to prevent heat
related illnesses.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday...

.Thunderstorms...
A few strong to severe storms will remain possible Sunday morning
in parts of south central and southeast Oklahoma, mainly southeast
of a line from Centrahoma to Ardmore Oklahoma.

Thunderstorm chances will return to parts of the area Monday night
and continue through the rest of next week.
