Thursday will be warm and windy with a threat of severe weather in the evening and night.

A few showers and thunderstorms will be across Oklahoma Thursday morning that will push east through midday.

Highs will climb into the 70s and 80s.

Thursday evening there will be a slight chance for isolated thunderstorms in southwest Oklahoma. If a storm can fire southwest, it will need to be monitored very closely. Storms in this area will be capable of hail up to the size of baseballs, winds to 70 mph, and will pose a low tornado threat as well.


We are not locked in that storms form ahead of the cold front. Through the evening a cold front will move in from the north. A squall line is expected to develop along this line. The line of storms will be severe as it marches southeast.


Storms along the line could produce golf ball size hail, winds to 65 mph, and localized flash flooding. The tornado threat along the line is very low, but not zero.


The timing of storms for the Oklahoma City metro will be from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m.


Our team of trackers will be out and we will keep you advised.
