TULSA, Oklahoma -

Northeastern Oklahoma should see another round of significant rainfall - between 1 and 2 inches - this week. Along with the rain comes the threat of severe storms, according to News On 6 meteorologist Dick Faurot.

At this point, it appears that storms will be most likely during the Tuesday to Wednesday overnight hours. If so, the main threat would be wind and hail.

"Any storms that may form during the late afternoon hours of Tuesday ahead of the approaching cold front would also pose a tornado threat," Faurot said in his weather blog.

Tuesday should be moderate with temperatures up in the mid 70s. The passage of the cold front Tuesday night will mean a dramatic change in temperature with Wednesday afternoon nearly 30 degrees colder.

Cloudy skies and periods of rain and showers should persist for much of the day Wednesday.

Last week the Tulsa area got 1.19 inches of rain from Tuesday to Thursday. Is it enough to help area ranchers and farmers?

"The soils are in good shape," Faurot said. "What we need is a runoff rain to help fill up the lakes and ponds."
