1151 AM CDT Sun Mar 26 2017

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

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

.Thunderstorms...
There is a Moderate Risk of severe thunderstorms across parts of
Oklahoma, surrounded by Slight and Enhanced Risk areas that cover
additional parts of Oklahoma and western north Texas.

Location...
The Moderate Risk area is east of a line from Waurika to Duncan
to El Reno to Guthrie, and south of a line from Guthrie to Stroud.
This includes the Oklahoma City metropolitan area, Pauls Valley,
Ardmore, Seminole, Ada, Atoka and Durant.

To the west of the Moderate Risk area, there is a Slight and
Enhanced Risk of severe weather across northern and western
Oklahoma, to the east of a line from Laverne to Clinton to Lawton
to Clay County Texas.

Timing...
4 pm through midnight.

Impacts...
Large hail up to tennis ball size will be the main hazard.
Damaging winds and tornadoes will also be possible.

Discussion...
Much higher humidity continues to move north through north Texas
and into Oklahoma this afternoon. This moisture will allow the
atmosphere to become very unstable this afternoon and evening.

Scattered storms are expected to develop mid to late afternoon
across western sections of north Texas and western Oklahoma and
become severe as they move east-northeast. The atmospheric wind
shear will support supercell thunderstorms with the associated
risk of large hail, damaging winds, and the potential of isolated
tornadoes. The highest chances of severe weather will be across
central, south central and southeast Oklahoma where instability
will be the highest. Storms are expected to move out of the area
around or just after midnight.

.SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT STATEMENT...

Storm spotter groups and emergency management personnel across
central, western, and southern Oklahoma and portions of north
Texas should prepare for severe weather operations from about
4 pm through midnight.

.Fire weather...
Fire Danger will be very high across southwestern Oklahoma and
western north Texas as dry air moves in behind a dryline. A Red
Flag Warning is in effect through early evening for this area.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday...

.Thunderstorms...
There is a slight risk of severe thunderstorms again on Tuesday
and Wednesday. There is also a chance of thunderstorms on Thursday
and Saturday.

.Heavy rain...
Heavy rain is possible on Tuesday, and likely on Wednesday.
