Golf ball sized hail, damaging winds possible

From the National Weather Service, Norman:

Today’s forecast, “Isolated thunderstorms will be possible along a dryline this afternoon and evening across portions of western Oklahoma. If any storms manage to develop, they could produce damaging wind gusts over 70 mph, and hail up to the size of quarters.”

And then Sunday, “A storm system will approach the Southern Plains this weekend, bringing a chance of severe thunderstorms on Sunday with damaging winds and large hail the primary threats.”

In case you had put your winter coat away, you might want it for Tuesday morning, ”Cold tempberatures will occur Monday night into Tuesday morning due to clearing skies and diminishing winds. A frost and/or freeze is possible across much of the area with lows mainly in the 30s.”

True, it is mid-April, but last year in early May, Westville in eastern Oklahoma received 3 inches of snow, according to the National Weather Service, Tulsa.
