Severe Storms Will Return to Oklahoma This Week
September in Oklahoma started off with continued extreme heatwaves from the summer months. We've finally moved into some cooler weather and have had a few much needed rain showers here and there. But now the severe thunderstorms are headed back to the Sooner State this week.
Most people assume severe thunderstorm and tornado season are just during the spring. But we do see a lot of severe thunderstorms with some tornadoes during the early months of the summer and then as the weather gets warmer, they taper off, but they always ramp back up when the weather changes in the fall. So here we are, talking about severe weather again because it's that time again.
Severe weather will start Monday evening and carry through Wednesday.
According to the National Weather Service in Norman, western Oklahoma will see severe weather this afternoon. Our friends in western Oklahoma can expect damaging wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour, plus hail up to quarter size. Luckily, the tornado threat is low for this afternoon.
Severe Weather Chances for Tuesday
Tuesday's severe weather chances will be more widespread. Most of Oklahoma have slight chance of severe risk Tuesday with possible hail up to golf ball size, wind speeds up to 60 to 80 miles per hour and, again, the tornado threat is low. But, remember, these predictions can always change!
Wednesday Severe Weather Chances
Portions of central Oklahoma and northeastern parts of state will continue to see severe weather chances through Wednesday afternoon. Biggest threats are large hail and damaging winds!
More cooler weather on the way!
With these storms moving through this week, it's looking like we'll be getting a little cold front! I love watching the temperatures get lower and lower.
