We’ll continue to track two separate strong upper-level systems influencing our weather for the next few days. Storm chances will continue to increase because of these systems, including the threats for some strong and severe storms across part of the area.

What are the storm chances on Thursday, April 25 and Friday, April 26 in Oklahoma?

Thursday afternoon and early evening, thunderstorms are expected to develop near this boundary across the far western third of the state.

The storms will tend to move eastward late Thursday night and arrive at part of our area in the overnight hours of early Friday morning. Some of the storms could be strong and severe.

Wind Gusts

The first upper air trough will begin lifting east northeast away from the area by Friday afternoon allowing a break in thunderstorm action after Friday morning, but a few additional storms will still be possible across extreme Eastern Oklahoma Friday evening and early Saturday morning including the threat of strong and severe storms.

Is severe weather expected this weekend in Oklahoma?

As the first trough accelerates away from the area late Friday night, the atmosphere will reload in advance of another strong trough approaching from the west. This brings strong south winds across our area Saturday at 20 to 35 mph with thunderstorm chances developing as the system draws closer to the area.

Rain Timeline

A few scattered showers or storms will be possible early Saturday morning, but higher chances for more significant storm activity will develop late Saturday afternoon and early evening to our west. The storms are anticipated to move eastward late Saturday night and overnight in the early Sunday morning with continued severe weather threats. All modes of severe weather threats will be possible.

Weekend 4/24/2024

Some lingering thunderstorms will remain Sunday morning with additional storms developing Sunday afternoon across extreme Eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas. By Sunday afternoon, a weak Pacific boundary crosses the area bringing a temporary respite from storm activity for a few days early next week.
