Isolated to Scattered Severe Storms Central/Southern Plains Today and Saturday...

This is nothing to get too worked up about, but isolated to scattered severe storms are likely this afternoon and evening and again on Saturday afternoon and evening across portions of the central and southern Plains.

For today, the primary threat is located over the Texas/Oklahoma panhandle region, into portions of western Oklahoma, as shown in green on the image above.

For Saturday, the Western edge of the primary threat area largely remains in place, while the Eastern edge shifts across most of the rest of the Sooner State, as well as portions of extreme northern Texas (as shown in green on the image below).

Large hail and damaging thunderstorm winds will be the primary severe weather threats both days, however an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out, particularly with any isolated, well organized storm(s).

Definitely go ahead with your Easter weekend activities as normal, but keep an eye to the sky each day in these areas, particularly from late afternoon into the evening hours.  Make sure that you have a way to receive severe weather warnings including during the late evening and overnight hours.
