We have three severe weather days ahead for the Sooner State.

Tonight will be quiet with lows in the mid 50s. Wednesday highs will climb into the mid and upper 80s with a few 90s southwest. Winds will crank up out of the south 20 to 40 mph. This will increase moisture across the main body of the state in advance of a dryline that will move in from the west. Storms are expected to fire along the dryline in far western Oklahoma between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. and will advance eastward through the evening. During the afternoon hours, storms in western Oklahoma will be capable of large hail up to the size of baseballs, winds in excess of 70 mph and isolated tornadoes. After sunset, as storms advance to the east, they will pose less of a tornado threat, but hail and damaging winds will still be possible. Time of arrival for the Oklahoma City metro is expected to be between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m.

We will get a break from storms on Thursday and Friday, but another stronger storm arrives on Saturday.

It is still a long ways out, but Saturday could end up being a high-end severe weather day for central and western Oklahoma. Sunday, the threat will be mainly along and east of I-35. Details for the weekend are not completely locked in yet.
