Some rain is expected across northern and central Oklahoma Thursday morning.

Warm and windy by Thursday afternoon. Storm chances will be possible across north and western Oklahoma during the afternoon and evening. A few storms could be severe with wind and hail the primary threats. The latest data has the storm chances low.

A broad upper level trough will develop through the weekend.

This will produce a cold front that will slide into the state. Friday will see more storm chances in the northwest with a few being severe. Saturday will be more of a statewide chance.

The storm will be a slow mover and bring the best rain chances Sunday through Tuesday. Heavy rainfall is expected and should lead to some flooding. Some severe weather is also possible. 

The pattern will dry out some before another storm approaches late next week. More rain looks possible.
