There is a chance for severe weather across parts of Oklahoma beginning Friday evening.  

The overall risk of tornadoes tomorrow is low. If tornadoes develop, the most likely time and area would be between 4 PM and 8 PM across portions of western Oklahoma (depicted by the hatched, yellow area).  Areas outside of the TORNADO ZONE should still stay on guard for rapidly changing weather conditions and the possibility of a tornado. 

Taking into account forecast parameters, the Maximum Tornado Intensity for tomorrow evening is EF1. This means that if tornadoes develop, their estimated maximum winds will range from 86 mph to 110 mph. In other words, if tornadoes develop they would be weak.
