Severe weather expected in Oklahoma Wednesday

blog.newsok.com Published: April 17, 2013

The warm front will continue to lift north today and is expected to extend from west central to north central Oklahoma by this afternoon, according to the National Weather Service, Norman Forecast Office. A dryline is also expected to extend south from the warm front near the Oklahoma-Texas State Line.



There is still some disagreement/uncertainty on the position of the warm front this afternoon which could have an impact on the severe weather this afternoon/evening.

Meanwhile, an upper storm system will also move east affecting the area. Thunderstorms are expected to develop near the front and possibly the dryline this afternoon in the warm sector. These storms, especially if they can stay discrete supercells, will likely be severe due to the instability and favorable wind shear, with very large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes possible.
