The next storm system will be a slow mover. A cold front will retreat Friday as a warm front into C OK stretching roughly along I-44 from SW to NE OK. Severe storms are expected to develop along and near this feature during the evening hours. As with most of our storms this year, the main threat will be hail and wind. However, there may be a tornado threat if certain conditions materialize such as an uncapped warm sector for overnight activity. I will have more details about that on Thursday as things are still very muddled. Also, flash flooding may end up being the big story as models indicate as much as 8″ of rain may fall in a few areas through Sunday morning. One of these harder hit regions is right in the OKC metro area as well as parts of E OK.

"Turn around, don't drown" will be a common theme this week. #flashflooding #wrn
Portions of the south OKC metro (including Moore and Norman) will see heavy enough rainfall rates over the next couple of hours to cause street flooding. Use caution if out driving, and don't attempt to cross through flooded roads. #okwx
Multiple rounds of heavy rain could cause flooding across portions of the area throughout the upcoming week. Through Tuesday night, the greatest concern is in portions of central, southern, and eastern Oklahoma where locally over 5" of rain may occur. #okwx #texomawx
