Our late April weather is living up to it’s reputation. We’ve seen a stretch of days with severe weather in the state. This afternoon, we’ve been tracking storms along a cold front. We had some heavier storms in the OKC metro, but the severe weather (large hail) has been to our northeast.
That front will push to the south tonight. It will barely make it into Texas before stalling out. This will give us a window of cooler, drier air and will allow us to reduce rain chances for late tonight through Tuesday.
By Tuesday night, the front returns to the north as a warm front. That will spark off more showers and thunderstorms. We should see some thunderstorms around Wednesday morning. By Wednesday afternoon, our focus will turn to a dryline to the west. Strong to severe storms could form along the dryline and move east.
Thursday and Friday will feature another cold front with a continued chance for storms.
Keep in mind, we’re at the point in the year where severe weather can develop quickly. Storms fired rapidly this afternoon along the cold front. The radar screen took about 30 minutes to light up. So, whenever we have thunderstorms in the forecast, you need to remain weather aware…
