OKLAHOMA CITY -- A few showers and thunderstorms will continue across northern Oklahoma Saturday afternoon with the primary threats being moderate to heavy rain, thunder and lightning, and a slight possibility of small hail.

Additional thunderstorm development is possible Saturday night along a warm front from southwestern Oklahoma into central Oklahoma.

If any thunderstorms manage to get going, they could become severe. The primary threats would be moderate to large-size hail and very strong winds. An isolated tornado can't be ruled out.

Southerly winds will return in force on Sunday at 15 to 30 mph and bring highs back into the mid to upper 70s and lower 80s with partly cloudy skies.
