Chilly and soggy start to the day Tuesday.

Highs Tuesday will struggle to make it out of the 50s in many locations. Look for mostly cloudy skies and showers to the southeast in the afternoon.

Highs will be close to record cold for Oklahoma City. The current record cold high for May 12 is 55 set back in 1914.

Tuesday Highs

Tuesday night a warm front lifts in and Gulf moisture makes a return. This will be fuel for thunderstorms Wednesday.

On Wednesday, look for a warm muggy day with highs in the 70s and 80s.

Wednesday Highs

A dryline will setup out west and storms will fire along that boundary. Storms will move into western Oklahoma around 5 p.m. Wednesday.

Rain & Storm Chances

Large hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes will be possible.

Isolated storms will be monitored very closely for a slightly higher tornado threat.

As the evening rolls along, storms will try to form into a squall line. This will pose more of a wind and hail threat.

We will monitor the storms from start to finish and keep you advised.
