Chance of thunderstorms continues for a few days

After a day of showers yesterday, it’s been a pretty nice day here in Oklahoma.  Plenty of sunshine and warm temperatures.  Thunderstorms are beginning to pop up in the far west end of the panhandle, and those counties remain under a severe thunderstorm watch until 11 pm this evening.

Locally, we have a slight chance for rain and thunderstorms late tonight.  It doesn’t look like it’ll be anything major.  If storms do develop, we could see a strong one.  Keyword is “if”.

Tomorrow’s chances are looking better.  I’d say late afternoon and early evening.  There’s a slight risk for severe thunderstorms in eastern Kansas and northeast Oklahoma.  If the pattern doesn’t shift overnight, I think the likely bullseye will be between Pittsburg and Fort Scott in Kansas, right on the KS/MO state line.

There could be a chase chance in there sometime tomorrow, but I won’t be able to make that decision until the morning models are available.

Rain is in the forecast for the next couple of days, but I don’t see any immediate chase opportunities past tomorrow.  At least not in the near future.  Of course, this is Oklahoma.  The weather can change at any time.
