Monday weather forecast in Oklahoma includes severe weather


Ah, if it’s spring in Oklahoma, then there’s a chance of severe weather including funnels, twisters or tornadoes.

The Oklahoma Mesonet’s Climatologist Gary McManus says Monday will bring a chance of severe storms across much of the state..

:Looks like we’ll see a classic springtime setup for Oklahoma, with a front and dryline, moisture return from the Gulf, and then it’s shake, rattle and roll. Oxford comma notwithstanding,” wrote McManus in a recent Mesonet update.
The Storm Prediction Center explained that tornadoes and wind damage will be possible.
“As the nose of the jet moves over the moist and unstable airmass
during the afternoon and evening, widespread severe weather is
expected to occur. Strong deep-layer shear and steep lapse rates
 are forecast to be favorable for a large-hail threat with supercells
across parts of Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas eastward into the lower Missouri Valley.”
As Oklahoma congresswoman Stephanie Bice encouraged in a recent column carried elsewhere in OK Energy Today, “Be weather aware.”
