What You Need To Know:
- More storm chances for Friday
- Storms could be severe with large hail and wind damage
Rain chances stick around into the weekend
May in Oklahoma means crazy allergies and a busy weather pattern with storm chances almost every week. This week, there are storm chances all the way into the weekend.
The highest chance of Green Country seeing severe weather is later in the week and by the weekend, there could be some places that see flooding. The flooding could be very localized to those low lying areas or increased from all the rain we've been seeing over the last few weeks.
The FOX23 Severe Weather Team talks about today's threats and what to expect into the weekend:
Another chance of severe weather is possible, this time a more centered over Green Country. The most intense storms will be from parts of North Texas through central Oklahoma and into southeast Kansas.
Large hail, damaging winds, and the chance of tornadoes will again be present on Friday as storms move through Green Country.
There is a chance that we could see some localized flooding for the end of the week as well. Rain showers and storms will be moving over already soaked ground from all the rain we've been dealing with over the last few weeks.
Many of the local creeks, rivers and especially lakes are in their flood pool stages that are impacting the recreational areas. Localized flooding, stream flooding, and flooding a few days after the rain will be something to keep an eye on.
Storm chances stick around in Eastern Oklahoma, but the severe threat will be lower than that of Thursday and Friday. Most of this will be left over from Friday's storms and moving through in the morning hours.
Flooding potential will still be present after many days of rain in the area. More than 3 inches of rain could be possible by the time all is said and done.
Rain chances clear out of the area allowing things to dry out moving into Sunday afternoon. Could still see a shower or two in the morning on Sunday, keep your umbrellas handy, but rain will be moving out.
