A strong upper level storm will track across Oklahoma today.

A dry line is current oriented north to south across far west Oklahoma this morning. It is expected to progress eastward through the day and will approach the OKC metro area by early afternoon. You will know this front is through when your winds shift southwest and pick up.

This front will be a focus area for storms today. Some of those will be severe. Strong winds and golf ball size hail are the primary threats. The threat for a tornado or two are possible but the threat it very limited. Any tornado would be small and short lived. We will have our storm trackers out and ready to go.

For OKC: The best chance for storms and possibly a severe storm will be around lunchtime today. Storms will then shift east.

The best chance for storms this afternoon will be just east of I-35 and across eastern Oklahoma. Storm chances will end once the dry line moves through.

It will be dry and cool tonight and temperatures will be 10 to 15 degrees cooler for your Friday.
