TULSA, OKLA- — Another risk of severe weather returns Saturday night. For us in eastern Oklahoma and southeast Kansas, most of Saturday will be breezy and warm with storms holding of until after dark.

The highest severe threat Saturday will likely be in western and central Oklahoma Saturday afternoon and evening with those storms eventually moving into eastern Oklahoma late in the evening through Saturday night. Damaging wind gusts, very large hail, and a tornado threat (possibly violent) will exist with the strongest storms that develop. The coverage of storms may not be very widespread, but what storms are out there will likely be intense with high-end severe weather possible.

Latest data still has a cold front draped over parts of eastern Oklahoma on Sunday afternoon with another chance of a few strong to severe storms with primarily and wind and hail threat. Highest chances look to be along and east of HWY 69 so if you have any plans to be on lakes in eastern Oklahoma, please stay weather aware Sunday afternoon and and evening. Be mindful of lightning even if storms are not severe.

After a quiet and nice Memorial Day, storm chances look to return in the middle of next week.
