A reminder, please have a severe weather plan. Weather information can quickly change, depending on the time of the day in what ways will you get your weather information? Depending on where you are, where will you seek shelter? Whether you use it in the near-future or not, it’s better to plan now than when severe weather arrives.

Below is information about tomorrow’s forecast and also a safety weather checklist.

From the National Weather Service, Norman Forecast Office:

The potential for severe storms will increase on Wednesday. While storms will still remain fairly isolated, conditions will become even more favorable for significant severe storms. The front will continue to lift north to near the Interstate-40 corridor by mid to late afternoon. A dryline will extend across west central Oklahoma and western north Texas. Sufficient heating should allow for a few isolated severe storms to develop. The main hazard will continue to be very large hail to baseball size. Damaging wind gusts to 70 mph are possible as well. As storms move eastward into central and northern portions of Oklahoma by evening, conditions will become increasingly favorable for a tornado or two. Storm severity will decrease after sunset, but scattered strong to possibly severe storms may linger into the first part of the night.
