A tornado watch has been issued for Tulsa and surrounding counties until midnight.

Ingredients are coming together for severe storms to develop late this afternoon and evening. Temperatures are expected to top out in the upper 80s to lower 90s with high humidity levels pushing heat index values into the upper 90s to lower 100s! Thunderstorms are expected to develop by late afternoon or early evening with very large hail (up to softballs) and strong straight-line winds (up to 80 mph) the main threats but a few tornadoes are possible.
