marginally severe hail this afternoon and tonight.

Additionally...fire danger will continue across most of the area
today...especially across northeast Oklahoma this afternoon where
northeast winds will gust between 25 and 30 mph behind the front.
The higher spread rates across northeast Oklahoma will create an
elevated fire danger this afternoon.

Low thunderstorm chances will continue through Wednesday night as
the lingering surface boundary lifts back north as a warm front.
Widespread shower and thunderstorm activity is expected Friday as
the next front and upper system will be poised to sweep through
the region. A limited severe threat will be in place Friday and
Friday evening...along with the potential for locally heavy
rainfall. Additional storms will be possible later Friday night
as the upper low passes by...and may pose a hail threat given the
cold temperatures aloft. Pattern to remain fairly active as
thunderstorm chances once again increase Sunday and Monday.
