OKLAHOMA CITY -

(UPDATE: 2 p.m.) A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued for much of the News 9 viewing area Tuesday.

Counties included in the watch are Alfalfa, Beaver, Beckham, Blaine, Caddo, Canadian, Cleveland, Custer, Dewey, Ellis, Garfield, Grady, Harper, Kay, Kingfisher, Lincoln, Logan, McClain, Major, Noble, Oklahoma, Payne, Pottawatomie, Roger Mills, Seminole, Washita, Woods and Woodward.

Oklahoma could see a few storms with severe winds and hail, Tuesday.

It will be warm and windy on Tuesday morning, but by late afternoon and evening there is a chance for rain and storms. Wind gust up to 65 MPH and hail the size of a quarter looks possible.

Wednesday and Thanksgiving day look decent. Winds will return on Thursday.

Another couple of could fronts will arrive next weekend and next week. Cooler nd more seasonable temperatures will take us into early December.
