Southwestern and southern Oklahoma could see some severe weather today (Tuesday) including the prospects of some tornadoes and large hail.
As State Climatologist Gary McManus put it in today’s Mesonet report, “Keep your head on a swivel.”
He warned the ingredients are there today for a supercell thunderstorm to form in Southwest Oklahoma and Northwest Texas “and them march to the E. That’s when the tornado threat will be the highest, although not TOO high (but high enough).”
McManus says hail and high winds will be the greatest threat.
As per usual, however, hail and high winds are the greatest threat. News 9 chief meteorologist David Payne says some of the strong weather could eventually move into central Oklahoma later tonight.
