Don't Panic and Just Prepare

The following is NOT and April Fools joke.

 

There is a slight chance that we may see some strong to severe weather later tonight. The main threat later today is in the southern part of the state. Here is a paragraph under the NWS discussion: 
 
AFTER 9 PM THIS EVENING...ANY ISOLATED STORMS OVER WESTERN NORTH TEXAS AND SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA ARE ANTICIPATED TO WEAKEN AS A CAPPING INVERSION STRENGTHENS WITH THE LOSS OF DAYTIME HEATING. NEW ELEVATED STORMS MAY DEVELOP OVER NORTHERN OKLAHOMA LATER TONIGHT AS THE LOW LEVEL JET INCREASES. A LOW SEVERE RISK WILL CONTINUE TONIGHT WITH LARGE HAIL AS THE MAIN HAZARD.
 
This said nothing to panic about but stay weather aware later this evening. For tomorrow, we are in a slight risk area for heavier weather. Here is another paragraph from the NWS FOR OUR AREA FOR TOMORROW. This may change but just stay aware:  .THUNDERSTORMS...
A MORE ROBUST SEVERE WEATHER EPISODE MAY TAKE SHAPE WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND NIGHT MAINLY OVER CENTRAL AND NORTHERN OKLAHOMA.
ALTHOUGH ONLY A HANDFUL OF STORMS MAY ACTUALLY OCCUR ON WEDNESDAY....VERY LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING WIND GUSTS WILL ACCOMPANY ANY STORM THAT DEVELOPS...ALONG WITH A THREAT OF TORNADOES. STORMS THAT MANAGE TO DEVELOP MAY WEAKEN AFTER SUNSET ON WEDNESDAY.
 
Finally, all of this may change some between now and tomorrow morning. Will advise again in the morning. 
 
Have a good evening.
