Severe weather returns. Don’t panic! An unstable airmass will arrive on Wednesday. Strong jetstream, cool front and dryline will trigger storms Wednesday afternoon and evening. Wind and hail are the main threats. Some of the hail in a few storms could be quite large. There is a low tornado threat overall as there is some turning in the atmosphere. NOT everyone will see severe weather. The images below are how I currently think things play out. More to come. #thetornadopayne #okwx #severeweather #weatherman #tornado #hail #oklahoma #spring

What a Saturday soaker! We are nearly a state divided on rainfall. Northern and NW missed this one. Our wet spring forecast continues to look good. On to the next storm! Which is Wednesday with severe weather possible. #okwx #rain #spring #weatherman #soaker #lovetherain

FIRST TORNADO IN OKLAHOMA FOR 2019. Von Castor/News On 6 Storm Tracker and KWTV - NEWS 9 Storm Tracker was chasing the mondo supercell in SW Oklahoma yesterday. As he was driving under the mesocyclone, he drove through a small vortex of wind. He stopped and watched as dust began to rotate and lift upwards. You can clearly see this in the video. Also notice the ragged cone looking feature above the dust swirl. Check out how condensate begins to fill in, lift and turn above the swirl. This to me is a very weak tornado. We also call these suction spots. They happen quite often but are so small and brief that many are not counted. #spring #severeweather #hail #okwx #weatherman #tornado

SEVERE WEATHER returns tomorrow! Certainly not a high end severe day. The dryline will fire a few severe storms late tomorrow afternoon near the Oklahoma- Texas state line. The main threats are hail and wind. The parameters for tornadoes is low tomorrow across far western and NW Oklahoma. Storms will rotate but mainly wind and hail producers. Storms will expand and move east tomorrow evening and night. #okwx #severeweather #oklahoma #weatherman #hail #wind #storms #thunderstorm #spring #dryline #

HAIL YES! NO TORNADOES! Quiet this evening but after midnight showers and storms will develop across western and central Okla. These storms will be behind the cold front which is a good thing. Some storms will produce nickel, dime and quarter size hail. A storm or two might produce golf ball size hail. OKC metro storms push in 2-3 am. WE WILL BE HERE ALL NIGHT TO KEEP YOU UPDATED. #okwx #weatherman #oklahoma #hail #storms #lightning #thundernstorm

RAIN, STORMS AND CRAZY WIND! Big storm currently located west of Baja California, will bring us several waves of rain statewide. The first arrives overnight and will continue through tomorrow. No severe weather tomorrow. Second, stronger wave arrives tomorrow night after midnight in western Oklahoma. This line of storms will blast across the state into early Wednesday morning. Damaging wind gust and hail are the main threats. There is a very low chance early Wednesday morning for a weak-isolated tornado. Wednesday afternoon will be sunny but crazy windy. Wind gust to 60 mph possible with the storms in the morning and lasting all day behind the dry line. Statewide rain with some localized flooding possible. #okwx #oklahoma #weatherman #rain #storms #windy #march
