East residents under watch as severe thunderstorms roll into area

East residents under watch as severe thunderstorms roll into area

If you don't see the rain, you can expect partly sunny skies. A stray shower/storm can not be ruled out during the afternoon but the good news is rain unlikely for most. We don't see one day over the next 7-10 that will even touch that seasonal standard.

Tonight |Rain showers in the evening with numerous thunderstorms developing overnight.

Severe weather is possible across most of northwest, western and central Oklahoma Thursday afternoon, the National Weather Service reports.

Stray showers will be possible on Saturday morning with a little dry time in the early afternoon. Rain will settle in, along with a few storms, after around 4PM, then stick around into Sunday night and Monday morning. Right now the Storm Prediction Center indicates that we have a "marginal" risk for severe storms. Southeast wind 5 to 9 miles per hour. It said thunderstorms are possible again Saturday into Sunday, but severe weather is not expected. Wind: N 10-15 miles per hour. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 68. Southeast wind of 10 to 15 miles per hour. That's not necessarily a bad thing - who's going to argue with 60s and 70s everyday and low levels of humidity?

SUNDAY: Partly cloudy and pleasant. Low 51F. Winds ENE at 10 to 20 miles per hour. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 59.

Saturday will start out sunny as clouds gradually build through the day. Lows through this period will be in the mid-50s with decreasing rain chances. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 67.
