Showers and storms are likely to develop again this afternoon across the High Plains along a surface boundary separating hot, dry air to the west, from warm, moist air to the east. Storms that lift off this moisture boundary will drift eastward towards Oklahoma by early evening; the most likely time for storms across the western half of the state will be from 6 PM to 6 AM Sunday morning.

Atmospheric conditions will be favorable for storms capable of producing large hail (mainly far western OK), and damaging wind gusts. Strong winds may reach far out from any storms, and may persist even after the storms have diminished. A rise in temperature may also accompany the strong winds.
