The atmospheric setup is not perfect and a tornado outbreak is not locked in. The chance is low that storms will initiate, but the impact will be high from those that do.

The best chance for severe weather will be west of Interstate 35 on Saturday, in central Oklahoma on Sunday, including the OKC Metro, along and east of I-35 on Monday, again including the OKC Metro area.
