Monday will be the hottest day of the year for the Oklahoma City Metro, and will also be a day to be weather aware.

Severe weather is looking likely for parts of the state into the afternoon and evening.

Time Of Arrival

The state will quickly warm into the 90s and even low 100s Monday. The air will be very muggy as dewpoints soar into the 70s.

Afternoon Temps

As a powerful cold front arrives, it will be a trigger for storms to develop. All that Gulf moisture will be fuel for powerful storms later Monday. The front will fire along Interstate 44 and storms will race to the southeast.

Monday the broken line of storms will be capable of large hail up to the size of baseballs. Damaging winds up to 75 mph will be possible. The tornado threat will be low, but not zero.

Behind the front, the severe weather threat quickly goes away.

Monday night we will drop into the 40s and 50s making for a much cooler day Tuesday.
