A spring-like setup is in place across the southern plains, this will mean the possibility of strong to severe thunderstorms in Oklahoma tonight and tomorrow.

A dryline is positioned in western Oklahoma and will move east overnight. Today's warm/humid conditions will be added fuel for tonight. Thunderstorms are expected to fire along the dryline in southwest, central, and north central OK between 2:00 A.M and 10:00 A.M. The main threat with storms overnight will be hail up to the size of golf balls, 65+ mph wind gusts, and the minimal chance of a tornado. Rainfall totals will be least in the west with highest amounts in eastern OK.

By tomorrow afternoon the severe threat will move into eastern Oklahoma and eventually into Arkansas by Tuesday evening.
