Severe Weather and Cooler Temperatures Headed to Oklahoma
Oklahoma kicked off October this past weekend with hot temperatures, but after a round of storms move through the state this week, we'll more seasonable temperatures for October.
According to the National Weather Service in Norman, severe thunderstorms are possible Tuesday, Oct. 3, in the afternoon and evening across western Oklahoma and north Texas. Tuesday's storms could bring hail up to golf ball size and winds up to 60 miles per hour.
Wednesday, Oct. 4 could see severe thunderstorms and flash floods.
Another round of severe thunderstorms is expected to move through southwest Oklahoma on Wednesday, Oct. 4, bringing large hail and damaging winds to the area.
With these storms, various areas of Oklahoma are at a marginal or slight risk for flash flooding. This means these areas could see heavy rainfall with localized flooding.
Per usual, Oklahoma could really use some rain! This week's storms will bring with them a lot of rain. Areas of Oklahoma could seen anywhere from 0.5 inches to 4 inches of rain!
Oklahoma will stay warm to start off this week, but as move through the week, we'll receive a cold front that will bring in seasonable fall temperatures! FINALLY!! It looks like towards the end of the week, we'll see daytime temperatures in the low 70s and evening temperatures in the 50s, with some areas in the 40s. I think Oklahoma can confidently say that fall has arrived!
