An elevated wildfire risk will continue through Saturday across much of Oklahoma, with thunderstorms possible across the eastern half of the state.
The News On 6 WARN team says on the heels of a warm week, Springtime severe weather is set to return to the state today and early next week. Strong winds sustained at 20 to 40 mph will race in from the south as a storm system approaches Oklahoma from the west.
When this system moves through the region, there will be a good chance for showers and thunderstorms, some of which could be severe Monday through Wednesday. The first half of the work week will also continue to be quite windy in the 15 to 30 mph range.
By mid-week, the storm system will move east of Oklahoma, taking the threat of storms with it.
