A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for Atoka, Bryan, Choctaw, Coal, Johnston, Marshall, Pontotoc and Pushmataha Counties until 10 pm. North Texas is not included, nor are counties along the I-35 corridor such as Carter and Love. Very unstable air over Arkansas and northern Oklahoma is generating widespread thunderstorms, some severe, along an advancing cold front. The potential for severe weather in Texoma is primarily from 7pm to midnight.

Less intense storms may linger into the pre-dawn hours Monday, so some areas will not be able to see tonight’s Lunar Eclipse due to clouds. The rest of the forecast remains unchanged, it will cool off a bit Monday behind the front before we return to the “frying pan” for the rest of the week.

Quiet weather returns Monday and the coming week looks dry and hot.

Here’s your 7-Day:

This evening/tonight: 40% Thunderstorms, severe possible

Monday: Sunny and not as hot

Tuesday: Mostly sunny and windy

Wednesday: Mostly sunny, windy, and hot

Thursday: Sunny and hot

Friday: Sunny and hot
