While today has been a quiet weather day, storm chances will begin to increase later tonight through tomorrow.
STORM CHANCES TONIGHT: A cold front has slipped through much of Oklahoma today, but it has now stalled out across the south. Later tonight, the front will move back to the north as a warm front, returning moist air to the state. As this happens, we’ll see a few thunderstorms break out across southern Oklahoma. It would not surprise me to see a a couple of these in central Oklahoma around daybreak tomorrow.
SATURDAY STORMS: Some of you will wake up to a few storms Saturday morning, but those will quickly move to the east. Much of the late morning and afternoon will be dry before another round of storms develops across western Oklahoma after 3:00 pm. There is a good chance that any storms that develop tomorrow afternoon will be severe with high winds, hail and even a few tornadoes. The storms will move east and most likely affect the OKC metro area late tomorrow evening, or overnight tomorrow night.
SUNDAY: Thunderstorms will likely move into eastern Oklahoma Sunday morning, so dry weather will be the rule for central and western Oklahoma. Sunday will be warm and very windy with a high fire danger.
EXTENDED OUTLOOK: Monday will be dry. Tuesday will offer a slight chance of a thunderstorm, but higher storm chances will be Wednesday and Thursday.
SPRING AHEAD: Don’t forget to set your clocks ahead one hour before you go to bed Saturday night. Make sure you also change the batteries in your smoke detectors.
