Showers and storms continue to move from the western part of the state into the northeast on Friday evening.

A tornado warning was issued for Okfuskee County and was canceled about 7:15 p.m., but a tornado watch remains in effect.

News On 6 stormtrackers spotted circulation near 1-40 around Clearview and Pharoah. A funnel cloud developed about 4 miles due north of Pharoah about 7:10 p.m., but it remained suspended and didn't touch the ground.

The National Weather Service also has issued several tornado watches until 10 p.m. for several Oklahoma counties including Latimer, McIntosh, Okfuskee Okmulgee and more.

Weather Alerts

Just before 6 p.m., severe storms moved into the Tulsa metro and from Haskell/Boynton and brought large hail with it. In Coweta, one cell was reportedly producing baseball-sized hail.

Storms moved north to northeast and were in the Oklahoma City area between 4-6 p.m. Those storms were severe with large hail, damaging winds and a possible tornado near Fletcher.

Storms should continue through Green Country as rain chances increase from 50 percent to 90 percent during the late evening. That also carries a chance of strong to severe storms with some howling winds.
