Weather forecasters say severe storms possible in Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Forecasters say there is a chance of severe thunderstorms across much of Oklahoma and other parts of the Central and Southern Plains.

The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma, says two rounds of severe storms are likely Thursday evening and early Friday, with damaging winds of up to 75 mph being the greatest threat.

Forecasters say severe storms will move from the Oklahoma Panhandle and northwestern Oklahoma Thursday night. The threatened area is home to about 325,000 people. Heavy rain and golf ball-size are also possible with the storms.

The National Weather Service has issued severe thunderstorm warnings for parts of northwestern and central Oklahoma as the storms move eastward. A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect until 9 p.m. for 35 Oklahoma counties, mostly in western and central Oklahoma.
