|SEVERE STORMS POSSIBLE THIS EVENING|

DISCUSSION...
Thunderstorms have developed along a Cold front and dry line that
continues to push across eastern Oklahoma. As the front overtakes
the dry line and continues to move east it will encounter a
moderately unstable but strongly sheared environment, with
thunderstorm coverage increasing during the late afternoon and
evening. A few supercell structures will be possible into the
early evening before storms become more linear along the front.
While damaging straight-line winds are the main hazard, the wind
shear in the lowest levels supports a very small tornado threat
during the late afternoon. The storms will quickly move east with
the threat of severe weather ending before 9 PM.

Strong and gusty south winds ahead of the front will shift to the
west and northwest, with gusts of 30 to 35 mph remaining possible
this evening. As drier air pushes east, there will be a period of
limited fire spread potential across parts of eastern Oklahoma
through early this evening.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Local Spotter Activation May Be Needed.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday.
TUESDAY through SUNDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Noticeably colder temperatures will follow the cold front and
prevail for the remainder of the week. A secondary cold front will
arrive later in the week keeping temperatures below normal into
next weekend.
