Northeastern Oklahoma - Heads Up for Damaging Wind Potential Overnight...

The thunderstorm activity responsible for producing tornadoes across southern Kansas and northcentral Oklahoma earlier this evening has congealed into a complex of strong to severe thunderstorms and is advancing East/Southeastward toward northeastern Oklahoma.

The primary threat appears to be shifting to damaging straight-line wind gusts and some hail.  If you live in northeastern Oklahoma, including the Tulsa area, make sure that you have a way to receive severe weather warnings overnight tonight should threatening weather approach your area.

In addition...with all of the heavy rain that has fallen across much of this region during the last 24-36 hours, additional heavy rains tonight will lead to a pronounced flash flooding threat.  If you live in a low-lying or flood prone area, you may want to consider moving to higher ground before this next round of storms arrives in the area.
