Summer Temps And Severe Storms On Tap For Oklahoma
Oklahoma is finally starting to see some warmer temperatures! It's been chilly and rainy for most of April, so I'm sure all Okies are ready for a bit of sunshine this May. But it won't last long as some severe storms are expected later this week.
According to the National Weather Service in Norman, Oklahoma will see temperatures this week warm to near and slightly above average. Some areas will get up to the low 90s by Friday, May 5. But it looks like we'll cool back down into the 80s Saturday, May 6 and Sunday, May 7.
Severe thunderstorms possible Thursday and Saturday.
As of Monday, May 1, the National Weather Service in Norman is predicting severe weather for Thursday, May 4 and Saturday, May 6.
For Thursday, severe thunderstorms are possible along a dryline, but the exact location of that dryline is uncertain. All hazards, including hail, damaging wind gusts and tornadoes, are all possible.
On Saturday, the National Weather Service says uncertainty is higher but "the weather pattern will remain favorable for the risk of severe weather." As of Monday, May 1, is too early for specifics, but the National Weather Service in Norman encourages everyone to stay weather aware!
