• Tips for Spring weather in Green Country

    By: Megan McClellan


    Whether it is time for a family review of your severe weather plan or you just moved to Green Country, it is key to know what you can expect weather-wise in Green Country.

    During the Spring, Oklahoma can see just about everything: strong-to-damaging winds, severe storms, tornadoes, even flooding conditions.

    One of the big things to know is the difference between a watch and a warning. The basic difference is that a watch means something could happen while a watch means that something is happening.

    Let's break down the different threats we see and what you need to know about each of them.

    Severe Storms

    No two storms are alike. Some storms will produce a tornado if the conditions are right, some will have torrential rains and others will have very strong winds.

    Each of these different threats leaves behind a different type of damage.


    Whether you are floating the river, hanging out on the lake, or going to the beach, it is important to know safety precautions to one of the top three storm-related killers in the United States.

    If you are close enough to hear thunder, you are close enough to get struck by lightning.

    Another thing to keep in mind is that not ever thunderstorm fits into the previously link "severe storm" category. You can have thunder and lightning without a severe storm. 


    The dangers of flooding aren't just an immediate threat but can stick around even once flood waters recede.

    There are many things you can do to protect yourself before and after a flood.
