TULSA, Oklahoma -

Strong to severe thunderstorms producing large hail are a threat in northeast Oklahoma this evening.

A massive cold front is approaching from the west with a slight risk of severe weather across central and eastern Oklahoma. The risk of tornadoes has been downgraded, according to WARN Team Chief Meteorologist Travis Meyer.

The cold front and heavy rains are expected to arrive in the Tulsa area between 10 p.m. and midnight, Meyer said.

"There will be cold rain and miserable weather conditions," he said Tuesday afternoon.
