10:10 p.m. Multiple tornadoes touched down Wednesday night in northern Oklahoma.

A tornado warning was issued about 9:30 p.m. for Alfalfa and Garfield counties, and a tornado was spotted shortly afterward near Carrier, Oklahoma. 

The storm produced multiple tornadoes near Goltry, Hillsdale, Carrier, Kremlin. 

Golf ball sized hail was reported near Carrier as the storm moved north, northeast. Heavy rain prompted a flash flood warning for Garfield County at 10:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. Thursday.

4:30 p.m. A tornado watch was issued for six north, central Oklahoma counties until 9 p.m.

If storms develop out ahead of the dryline Wednesday evening, they would likely become severe with all modes of severe weather possible. However, the chance that storms do develop remains very low at this time.

Trackers are out regardless.

Chances for storms, including severe, are higher Thursday afternoon. Stay weather aware!
