Stormy spring-like weather could hit Oklahoma this week

Oklahoma could see some of the first violent weather of the year this week. Violent in terms of large hail and damaging winds.

Climatologist Gary McManus with the Oklahoma Mesonet put it this way in his Tuesday morning Mesonet update.

“It’s still early in the forecast period for this, being 3 days out, but it does appear there will be the chance for some supercell action with large hail and severe winds being the primary threats to focus on at this point. But as per usual, that forecast, including the severe weather types and locations, will probably change a bit over the next couple of days, so stay tuned to your favorite non-insane weather provider.”

Most of the forecasts suggest rain east of I-35.
