Scattered thunderstorms are in the forecast for Thursday afternoon.
Rain chances in Tulsa are expected to increase between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
FOX23 Chief Meteorologist James Aydelott says, “Still tracking a windy afternoon, at times those northwest winds could hit 35 miles per hour. Not generating any storms. That will change over the weekend.”
The National Weather Service predicts the thunderstorms will be east of the region by the evening hours as dry air moves in behind the front.
Aydelott says, “Thunderstorms roll our way late Saturday from western Oklahoma.”
Meteorologists at NWS say Sunday will feature the best chance for widespread and high end severe weather across much of eastern Oklahoma.
Very large hail, damaging straight line winds, and tornadoes continue to look possible with the strongest storms Sunday afternoon and evening.
