Severe Weather Risk Fires Up Again On Friday

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

Today will be the last day of this severe weather pattern we've been under. That is the good news.

The bad news is today may turn out to be the most dangerous for a large part of the state. A high chance of severe weather is expected as we go through the afternoon, tonight and overnight. Very large hail up to the size of softballs, wind gusts in excess of 75 mph and a few -- possibly large -- tornadoes will be possible from 3 p.m. this afternoon through about 2 a.m. Saturday.

We will once again be sitting on a "powder keg" as heat and humidity climb to their highest levels since the tornadic storms of last week. Twisting wind shear will become maximized heading into the evening hours and peak as we go into the dark hours of tonight. These winds look strongest across central and southern Oklahoma from late afternoon till about midnight tonight.

A strong cold front will push though overnight tonight and should bring a welcoming shot of stable and milder air over the weekend.

We are watching the conditions very closely today. Make sure you have multiple sources available to keep you aware of the weather.
