Storm Chances Increase For Eastern Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:

TULSA, Oklahoma -

We are tracking a few showers and thunderstorms this morning across part of southeastern and east central Oklahoma and additional storms are possible today and tonight across portions of northern and eastern OK.   A few of these storms may continue to produce pockets of heavy rainfall, frequent cloud-to-ground lightning, and strong winds.  As we’re posting this morning, storms are severe as they move southeast and east at 30 to 40 mph.  As the storms moved across part of the metro this morning, winds from 40 to 65 mph were detected resulting in power outages and some sporadic wind damage.

WARN Interactive Radar

A weak boundary is position north of the state this morning but should slowly drops south during the next 24 hours. Showers and storms are expected to develop later this afternoon across portions of Northwestern Oklahoma and/or south-central Kansas and move east-southeast across our area later tonight. Storms will have the potential to produce heavy rainfall, frequent lightning, and damaging winds.   We may have two separate chances later today.    An area of storms could approach part of NE OK later this afternoon with another batch possibly later tonight.    Any of these could be severe.

Weather Alerts

A few additional showers or storms will be possible Friday morning and then again late Friday night across parts of Northern Oklahoma. The additional cloud cover should help to keep temperatures cooler than the previous few days with Friday’s highs in the upper eighties or lower 90s.

A few storms will continue to be possible Saturday morning across part of Northeastern Oklahoma before the front begins moving northward as a warm front later in the day.   In the mid-levels of the atmosphere, the ridge of high pressures is expected to expand once again across the southern and central plains.   Model data indicate this ridge will be the dominate weather feature across the region next week bringing dry but hot conditions back to the state.   We’ll be in the upper 90s or a few 100’s next week.
