We've received a brief reprieve from the storminess of last night; brief being the key word. Showers and thunderstorms are likely to develop by mid-morning across far western OK, and become more numerous as the day lingers on. Upper-level wind energy sweeping over the Central Plains, combining with an area of low pressure and a dry line (moisture boundary) at the surface in vicinity of the OK/TX Panhandles, will provide the necessary ingredients for severe thunderstorms.

Storms will be capable of producing tornadoes, very large hail and damaging straight line wind. The highest risk for severe weather will exist across the western-half of OK, this does include the Oklahoma City metro area.
