Later on Tuesday, a few additional showers and storms will develop closer to northern Oklahoma.

Severe weather threats are minimal, mainly restricted to south-central Oklahoma into the Red River Valley and north central Texas, although a few storms may produce marginally severe hail across central to northern Oklahoma.

Storm Chance Timeline 5/26/2024

The prevailing upper-air pattern from the northwest is set to continue until the end of the week, suggesting regular occurrences of showers and storms, primarily during late night and early morning hours.

Our forecast is shaped around this pattern and a consensus of model data, with adjustments to the timing and probabilities expected as the week progresses. A stronger disturbance is projected for Thursday night into Friday and our probabilities reflect this scenario.

The upper air flow is likely to shift from the northwest to the southwest over the weekend, introducing a stronger current over the southern and central plains. For now, our probabilities remain mostly low Saturday, but we have increased those values from late Saturday night into part of Sunday morning for this forecast cycle. 

Temperature-wise, the work week should see near-normal conditions, with morning lows in the 60s and afternoon highs mostly in the lower 80s.
