Storms look likely for much of Oklahoma Friday afternoon and evening.

Gulf moisture will stream into the state Friday afternoon and increase the threat for severe weather in the evening for central Oklahoma. This includes tennis ball size hail, damaging winds up to 70 MPH, and a weak tornado or two.

The tornado threat will primarily be in southwest Oklahoma, but it does include the Oklahoma City Metro.

Storms will shift east of OKC after midnight.

The state is looking to see some pretty nice weather over the weekend as highs start to move into the 70s and 80s.

Our next storm system is on track to arrive late Tuesday into Wednesday.
