A cold front pushing into western Oklahoma Saturday will bring the chance of severe weather to the eastern third of the state by Sunday. The National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center in Norman advises Oklahomans to be aware dangerous weather is on the way.

News On 6 meteorologist Alan Crone says severe thunderstorms could develop in western Oklahoma on Saturday. On Sunday morning some thunderstorms could pop up in southeast portions of the state. He says there is a slight chance some could become severe.

By Sunday afternoon, the dry line and cold front will move out of eastern Oklahoma raising the potential for large hail, damaging winds and some tornadoes east of Highways 69 and 75.
