TULSA - Green Country has yet another afternoon and evening of severe weather in store, and meteorologists say it could be worse than the previous two days.
The potential exists for high winds, damaging hail, and even large tornadoes, according to News on 6 Chief Meteorologist Travis Meyer.
"An extremely volatile atmosphere is shaping up for much of northeast Oklahoma as we look at some of the latest data," he told KRMG early Friday afternoon.
"Large hail and the potential for large tornadoes is existing," he continued. "That's a bad, bad combination and we're quite concerned that some of these tornadoes could be very large."
The National Weather Service has issued a statement which also highlights the possibility for dangerous weather conditions.
"Significant severe storms and flooding are expected across eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas later today and tonight," its website states. "Tornadoes, including long track and violent ones, are possible, in addition to hail greater than the size of baseballs, and damaging winds.
"Life- threatening flash flooding will be possible into Saturday morning, especially across parts of northeast Oklahoma and southern parts of LeFlore County that have already saturated soils.
"Make sure you have a severe weather safety plan ready, and prepare to put it into action if either a tornado or flash flooding threatens your area."
KRMG has the Storm Center fully staffed, it will be activated as soon as weather conditions warrant.
