Severe storms expected Friday across Texoma

Severe storms are expected Friday across Texoma with tornadoes, damaging winds, large hail and flooding all possible as a powerful cold front is expected in the afternoon and evening hours.

The areas east of US 69/75 are under a moderate threat of severe weather, with Texoma counties west of the highway facing an enhanced chance of damaging storms.

Supercell thunderstorms could develop before a squall line is expected to form in the late afternoon and evening hours. Damaging winds up to 70 miles per hour and large hail are the primary threats, but a spin up tornado is possible, and flooding remains a threat as well with rainfall amounts expected to be up to 4 inches in parts of Texoma.

Then on Saturday the cold front will give us a chance at a quick mix of rain and snow before lifting off to the northeast. Snow amounts will be light, and travel is not expected to be impacted.
