Severe Storm Chances Remain High To Round Out Week In Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

South winds will continue to pump in plenty of moisture into Oklahoma Wednesday afternoon, giving the state another chance of severe weather.

Just before 3 p.m., a tornado warning was issued for southeastern Caddo County. It's in effect until 3:15 p.m. At 2:53 p.m., a tornado was spotted four miles northwest of Cyril, Oklahoma. 

A tornado watch has also been issued for the western half of Oklahoma until 9 p.m.

The rest of the week offers a good time for residents to review their severe weather plans and remain weather aware.

Now this does not mean everyone will see severe weather on Wednesday or over the next several days. However, the ingredients will be in place for some very nasty storms to produce baseball size hail, damaging winds and even tornadoes.

Our first chance of severe weather ramps up later Wednesday, by late afternoon and into the evening hours. As you can see by the storm chance map, the chances are fairly low as we're only expecting isolated storms to develop and not widespread rains like we got to enjoy Tuesday night.

If any thunderstorms do develop they'll have a good chance of becoming severe and this is why we have a slight to moderate risk across western and central Oklahoma.

Right now the area with the highest chances to see storms and severe weather would be from Altus, Lawton to Duncan into north Texas. These storms could move northeast this evening and overnight into the metro. These storms should start to gradually weaken overnight as the severe weather threat will diminish after midnight.

Besides severe weather, any of the storms could put down very heavy rainfall and produce flash flooding. Especially in the areas that have already seen over 3 to 4 inches in the past 48 hours.

So make sure to remain weather ready and weather aware as the News 9 weather team and trackers are ready for whatever comes our way.
