What are the storm chances in Oklahoma on Tuesday, June 4 and Wednesday, June 5?

Additional storms are likely to arrive later Tuesday evening in some of the area, including the Tulsa metro, and could continue along and south of I-40 into the overnight hours and early Wednesday morning.

Tuesday evening’s storms could be strong and severe, with damaging winds and extremely heavy rainfall. The timing is subject to change, but supports probabilities of 8pm tonight to 2am Wednesday morning.

Storm Chance Timeline

Severe to severe storms formed along and south of I-40 last night, causing damaging winds and flooding in some of these locations. Most of this activity will taper off quickly early this morning. Use caution if traveling in flood-prone areas south of I-40 during the early morning hours.

The upper air pattern continues to support periodic storm intrusions, usually in the form of large storm complexes, moving from the northwest to the southeast. This prevailing northwest flow pattern is typical for early to mid-June as stronger westerly winds migrate slightly northward and the subtropical ridge begins to extend northward from Mexico into the southwestern states.

Serious threats

We expect this pattern to continue for the next two weeks or a little longer before the ridge begins to expand mainly across the southern Plains.

There has been triple-digit heat in southwest and far west Texas in recent days. Highs on Tuesday will reach the upper 90s as far southwestern OK and some western parts of North Texas.

Our daytime highs will remain in the mid 80s today, reaching the upper 80s Wednesday through the weekend, with heat index values ‚Äč‚Äčnear the mid 90s.

Rain timeline

What will the weather be like in Oklahoma later this week?

A weak border is likely to shift south Wednesday evening and Thursday, near north into central OK, before stalling southwest of the Tulsa metro. This boundary could be a focal point for some showers or storms developing during this period, mostly southwest of the Tulsa metro Thursday.

This boundary should rise or diffuse northward Friday as the upper airflow from the northwest strengthens. This pattern suggests that another complex may be possible near the area late Friday evening into early Saturday morning, near or slightly west of the metro. Based on this pattern, we continue with a moderate probability of a storm complex near the area.

Pattern recognition and some model data also suggest that another storm complex is likely to impact part of southern Kansas and northern OK either late Saturday evening or early Sunday morning until noon. Any of these storm systems could bring heavy rainfall and some severe threats, usually in the form of strong to damaging winds.
