Severe weather possible for much of Oklahoma Wednesday

There is a risk for severe weather across Oklahoma Wednesday evening through the overnight hours, according to the National Weather Service.

Much of Oklahoma has a low risk for severe weather as storms are set to track through the state Wednesday evening and through the night, according to the National Weather Service.

The greatest possibility of severe weather is in western parts of the state, where storms are set to fire off between 6 and 10 p.m. A marginal risk of severe weather is forecast for much of the rest of the state, with storms expected to enter central Oklahoma after 9 p.m.

The main threats associated with the storms could be hail up to the size of golf balls and wind gusts up to 60 mph. The tornado potential is very low.

In Oklahoma City, storms could drop up to an inch of rain overnight. Thursday is forecast to be dry, but wet weather could return Friday through Sunday, the weather service reported.
