Chance of severe weather this weekend in Oklahoma


The weekend could bring a chance of severe weather to Oklahoma, first on Saturday in the west, then Sunday in the east.


“A chance of storms on Saturday out west, but we see a chance of severe weather on Sunday, so that will need to keep your attention across central and eastern OK,” wrote Oklahoma Climatologist Gary McManus.

He indicated the most likely threats will be some large hail and severe winds but on the lower end of the severe scale. Plus, no tornadoes.

“Certainly not like we saw at times last November when we had some bigtime tornadoes rumbling across the state (and then set records for the highest tornado counts for December, January, and February with 8, 5, and 13, respectively). We’re sitting at 73official twisters for 2023 thus far…we don’t want to add to that total!”
