Showers and thunderstorms with small hail and gusty winds continue to move through the state Monday.  After the first round Monday morning, new strong to possibly severe storms are possible Monday evening across southern Oklahoma, where the main threats will include hail and damaging winds. 

Two southern Oklahoma counties are under a Tornado Watch until 7 p.m. Monday: Tillman and Cotton Counties.  Strong thunderstorms moved through these counties from North Texas in the afternoon, but only briefly reached severe limits with hail up to an inch in diameter.

The showers and storms will end from west to east Monday night.

This activity is the result of a low pressure storm system moving through the central U.S., and this system is expected to bring cooler conditions by Tuesday.
