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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight...

There is Slight Risk of severe thunderstorms across portions of
northern and central Oklahoma and a Marginal Risk for much of the
rest of the area.

The Slight Risk area is northeast of a line from near Alva to
Hobart to Lawton to Seminole. A Marginal Risk surrounds the Slight
Risk and encompasses all but far northwest Oklahoma.

The most likely time for severe weather will be from 3 PM to 10 PM.

Damaging winds up to 70 mph. Mainly quarter to half dollar size
hail but possibly as large as golf balls. Very heavy rain.

Thunderstorms will increase by mid afternoon across portions of
south-central and southeast Oklahoma. A few of these storms could
become severe with damaging wind gusts the primary threat.

A more substantial severe weather threat could develop later this
afternoon along a cold front moving through the area.
Thunderstorms with large hail and damaging winds could impact
north central Oklahoma first and then develop southwestward into
southwest Oklahoma. By evening, a line of thunderstorms could
form and move across much of central Oklahoma.

The potential for severe storms is expected to diminish late this
evening and overnight but thunderstorms will remain possible
across portions of the area through early Thursday. Heavy rain and
cloud to ground lightning would be the main impacts with these

.Heavy Rainfall/Flooding...
A very moist environment will support locally heavy rainfall
amounts and the potential for flooding or flash flooding. Portions
of the area have experienced heavy rainfall amounts already
causing the ground to be saturated. Additional heavy rainfall on
these saturated grounds could lead to flooding.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday...

Thunderstorms will be possible each day through Tuesday. Strong
to severe storms will be possible across western Oklahoma and
portions of western north Texas Thursday evening. Large hail and
damaging wind gusts will be the main concerns along with
torrential rainfall.
