Severe weather returns to Oklahoma on Thursday. Hail and wind are the primary threats.
The return of a more unstable airmass will occur during the day on Thursday. The prelude to this will be very light passing showers from west to east across the state during the morning.
A CAP will prevent storms from forming with the exception of far SW OK where a supercell storm or two should develop by late afternoon. Otherwise as the low level jet increases, elevated storms will fire along a front and move SE during the late evening hours (>9pm). These will produce very heavy rainfall along with hail. The hail sizes look to be between 1 and 1.5″ inch in diameter according to model data.
I’ll have more updates on this event during my live video broadcasts on my social media channels. Thanks for reading and please share this information with your friends and family. -AT
