The National Weather Service in Norman is predicting Wednesday to have active severe stretching from Texas all the way to Iowa. As of Tuesday morning, an enhanced risk for severe weather is likely Wednesday for Central/North Texas, Central/Eastern Oklahoma and Western Arkansas. The enhanced risk includes Oklahoma City, Dallas, Austin and Fort Smith.
As for here in Northern Oklahoma, we are currently under a slight risk for severe weather on Wednesday. That does not mean we can’t see a storm as strong or stronger than what Oklahoma City might get. The main threat for Northern Oklahoma and Southern Kansas appears to be damaging wind and large hail. There is a tornado threat for Wednesday, but the chances are very low according to the National Weather Service’s synopsis.
The time frame for storms Wednesday across Northern Oklahoma looks to be anytime after 3 p.m. Make sure your weather radios are good to go.
