Large hail, tornadoes possible Tuesday in Oklahoma

NORMAN, Okla. — The National Weather Service says a storm system could bring baseball-sized hail and isolated tornadoes to parts of Oklahoma on Tuesday.

Forecasters say severe storms will likely begin firing late afternoon Tuesday. The greatest risk for the severe storms is near and east of a line from Seymour, Texas, to Lawton to Yukon to Ponca City.

Areas west of that line, including Woodward and Altus, are at a slight risk for severe weather.

Forecasters say the storms could bring 2-inch-diameter hail, wind gusts of up to 80 mph and isolated tornadoes.

A cold front will follow the storm system into the state, and temperatures are expected to drop well below freezing in western Oklahoma. Forecasters say a mix of sleet and freezing rain in possible in some areas early Wednesday.
