More stormy weather ahead

Ponca City Now - May 26, 2016 9:44 am

Ponca City Emergency Management Director Paula Cain said more stormy weather is expected in the region

"The most recent Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center has pushed the Enhanced area all the way into Kansas. But I would not be surprised to see some storms develop along the Oklahoma-Kansas border, starting around 2 p.m.," she said. "Hail to the size of baseballs, wind gusts of 80 mph and very heavy rain are concerning. The tornado risk is somewhat lower today. In addition, storms could form along the dryline in the evening and overnight."

She said t he forecast for the next seven days includes rain each day.

"That does not mean we will have storms every day; it means every day some area will see storms. As you head out for the holiday weekend, be sure to have a way to monitor weather conditions wherever you are," she said. "Don’t be caught by surprise!"
