Slight Chance Of Local Severe Thunderstorms This Evening And Overnight

Warm, moist air is moving north from the Gulf this afternoon. Winds will be gusting at times to 20 to 25mph as an area of low pressure begins to take shape across southern Oklahoma.  

Trailing from this area of low pressure will be a trough of low pressure, a dryline, and this will act as a focusing mechanism for a few thunderstorms.  The atmosphere is very energetic today so any storm that can tap into this energy could rapidly become severe with large hail being the main threat ,although, strong gusty winds and an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. 

Again, I want to emphasize that these storms will be few and far between, if they form at all.  Just keep an eye to the sky if you are out this evening and if you are able to, stay tuned to KLTV or KLTV.com for the latest severe weather information.
