Scattered showers and t-storms will develop through the day. Again today, a few storms may be severe with wind and flooding the main threat. There will be a very low tornado threat again today as well. Here's a look at the rain timeline for OKC. #okwx @NEWS9 pic.twitter.com/KLA9dU2mKA— Lacey Swope (@LaceySwope) October 8, 2018
Some gusty winds and small hail is expected. The tornado threat is very low but not zero in southwest Oklahoma during the evening. The threat will increase again Tuesday as another bigger line of storms move across the state.
The rain will end from west to east behind the line and should be finished. It will end in the metro by late afternoon.
A strong cold front will push in Tuesday.
FORECAST UPDATE: The next 2 days you will need to stay weather aware! The rain and storms will stay mainly in west OK today. A strong cold front will push in Tuesday. Flooding and severe weather expected. All modes of severe weather look possible. @news9 #okwx pic.twitter.com/Fxv9CUiXAq— Jed Castles News 9 (@JedCastles) October 8, 2018
Cooler, fall air moves in the rest of the week. Looks like Summer is over! Another storm system arrives later in the week around Friday.
FROSTY MORNINGS are just about a week away. Strongest cold front yet still looks to arrive this weekend. We could see freezing temperatures in our panhandle by early next week. Frosty AMs for N & NW OK Monday-Tuesday. Chilly conditions with low 40s in the OKC Metro. #okwx @NEWS9 pic.twitter.com/yBSsSeAgEF— Lacey Swope (@LaceySwope) October 8, 2018
