Central Oklahoma could see its first severe weather Wednesday since the end of one of the worst storm seasons in the state’s history.
The National Weather Service, Norman Forecast Office is predicting up to baseball size hail and wind gusts up to 70 mph Wednesday afternoon for parts of central Oklahoma.
David Andra, meteorologist in charge at the National Weather Service, Norman Forecast Office, said tornadoes are possible, though the main concern will be wind and hail.
The last tornado warning issued by the National Weather Service, Norman was May 31, 2013.
“I think there’s a little more anxiety after last year,” Andra said. “The thing to do to offset that is to have a plan, know what you’re going to do and watch the forecast.”
Andra said storms are most likely to produce severe conditions in central and northern Oklahoma about 4 p.m. and will move east in the evening.
