There is a possibility of tornadoes and large hail tonight in the Greater Oklahoma City Metro Area. That storm area extends into Kansas, Texas and Missouri. According to an April 2 report by KWTV Channel 9 News in Oklahoma City, residents are being urged to have their safety plan ready by 6 p.m. should tornadoes strike the area.

There is a 60 percent chance of severe weather tonight. The threat of tornadoes starts about 6 p.m. It should end about midnight. Hail can be as large as baseballs.

In addition to the possible tornadoes and hail as big as baseballs, there is also the possibility of heavy rain. Areas in north and northeastern Oklahoma can expect up to three inches of rain.

“I wish Gary [England] was still doing the weather,” Marilyn Barnes, a mother of three from Oklahoma City, said. “I grew up watching him. I always felt safe when he was watching our weather. This is the first time could have weather without him. I am not looking forward to that.”

This is the first severe weather of the 2014 tornado season in Oklahoma. Last year, there were many tornadoes. The most notable would be the tornado that hit Moore on May 20, 2013 and the El Reno tornado on May 31, 2013.
