NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Forecasters say a storm system will bring a chance of severe weather to Oklahoma.
The National Weather Service said Sunday there is a slight risk of severe storms Monday afternoon and evening in the western half of the state.
Forecasters say instability and wind shear in the atmosphere will support the development of strong storms that could produce large hail, damaging winds and locally heavy rainfall. But weather service data indicates that the threat of tornadoes is very low.
Severe weather is also possible Tuesday afternoon across southern and southeastern Oklahoma. Forecasters say large hail and damaging winds are the primary threats.
There will be a chance of thunderstorms through late in the week as the slowly evolving storm moves across the region.
