Today is a First Alert Weather day based on the forecast for severe thunderstorms this afternoon. We've seen widespread strong thunderstorms all over west Texas overnight. Instead of pushing due east, these storms will likely drift north and weaken over the next few hours. So our concern for severe storms is not based on these storms moving into Texoma. Our risk for severe weather will come from storms that will develop here in Texoma later this afternoon. These storms may produce large hail and tornadoes. Slight storm chance will stay with us into tonight and Thursday. Our weather is looking nice for the weekend. In fact, the best weather over the next 5 days may come Saturday with light winds and highs in the low 80s.
