This afternoon’s isolated thunderstorms will ramp up through the evening, meaning a threat of severe weather across northeastern Oklahoma.
The National Weather Service in Tulsa expects several strong to severe storms as a cold front pushes a line of storms across Green Country.
Severe potentials are expected to exit by late evening. Large hail up to 2 inches and greater, damaging wind gusts of 60 to 70 mph, and also a tornado threat will be possible across eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas.
Damaging winds are the main threat along the front. Areas south and east of the Tulsa metro are at a higher risk of severe weather.
The National Weather Service recommends having three sources for weather information. Check and charge batteries in battery-powered sources. Develop and practice a severe weather safety plan, including steps you and your family will take at home, work and school.
