News 9-Lacey Swope - April 29, 2022 1:18 pm

OKLAHOMA CITY – 

A warm and windy day for your Friday.

It will be downright hot for folks out west.

The fire danger is extreme Friday for folks out west behind the dryline.

This is where humidity will drop to around 5%.

On the east side of the dryline we will be warm, humid, windy and will have high instability.

This means if a storm can develop, it will grow very rapidly and would quickly become severe.

Any storm today will be capable of large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes.

However, the chances for any storm today will be 20%.

On Friday night as the cold front swings in, rain and storm chances will be higher.

These storms between midnight and 5:00 a.m. could also be severe with hail up to golf ball size, winds up to 65 mph and a very low tornado threat.
