According to the National Weather Service in Norman, "storms are expected to develop over the high plains of Colorado and New Mexico on Friday afternoon, then move southwest as a storm complex into Oklahoma and perhaps north Texas." We can expect storms to ramp up here in Oklahoma around 10 p.m. tonight, and we may see strong to severe storms overnight.

As for Saturday, storms are expected to intensify after sunrise and there could be more widespread severe weather. Safe to say it's going to be a wild 48 hours for weather here in Oklahoma.
