They say variety is the spice of life. We'll have plenty of it over the next 48 hours here in Oklahoma!

Let's start with today. Mostly cloudy skies will turn mostly sunny to partly cloudy around lunch time, giving the advancing dryline and cold front plenty of fuel to develop severe thunderstorms. The dryline moves in first followed by the cold front. Severe thunderstorms could start as early as 2 p.m. in central Oklahoma.

The main threat with any storms that develop will be from large hail and damaging wind. The overall tornado threat is low. The best placement for any tornadoes today would be along the dryline later this afternoon in southern Oklahoma.

After the severe weather threat ends, we shift our focus to winter precipitation. Accumulating snow appears likely in northwest Oklahoma, while a dusting is possible through northern Oklahoma. We could see a mix here in central Oklahoma. Temperatures will drop to around freezing in Oklahoma City early Tuesday morning.

Spring or Winter? Why not both? :]
