Severe Weather Update - Oklahoma & Northwest Texas...

Below are some of the images of the tornado that took place near Snyder, OK at about 3:30 this afternoon, via KWTV Channel 9 in Oklahoma City:




The following video of a tornado produced by the same storm near the Wichita mountains in southwest Oklahoma was just posted to YouTube:


There are numerous reports of damage in association with this tornado, as well as others that were produced by the same storm as it tracked North/Northeast toward the Binger area.  Fortunately, there are no reports of fatalities at this time.

Currently, radar is showing strong to severe thunderstorm activity across a broad swath of western and northcentral Oklahoma:


This activity is generally moving toward the North/Northeast at 35 mph, and will gradually move and/or develop Eastward later this evening and tonight as a strong upper-level weather disturbance moves across the region from the West and Southwest.

Large hail and damaging winds are likely with stronger storms this evening and tonight, and isolated tornadoes also cannot be ruled out.

A Tornado Watch continues until 9pm CST for much of western Oklahoma and northwest Texas, and until 1am CST for portions of extreme northcentral Oklahoma and southeast Kansas:
