Widespread severe thunderstorms with a higher than normal risk of strong to violent tornadoes will develop in the afternoon and evening across Eastern Oklahoma and Western Arkansas.

These will be discrete, supercell thunderstorms capable of very large hail up to baseball size, wind gusts to 90mph, & risk of strong tornadoes.


Storms will begin on a surface dryline which was located east of Oklahoma City at Noon on Sunday. The dryline is expected to enter Eastern Oklahoma around 3pm and will result in thunderstorm develop.

The storms will be out of the area by midnight, if not earlier, with cooler than normal weather expected for the upcoming week.

LIVE Coverage will be on both KFSM and/or KXNW as storms move across the area. Streaming has also been enabled on and on your cellular devices with our 5i App.

    So much sadness on the weather desk….They won’t get to interrupt the television shows tonight to report something that happened in OKC or Little Rock. I’m all for reporting locally, but OKC and Little Rock are a little far out of the viewing area. Thank God I’ll get to watch Amazing Race!!!

    Garrett does the best he can with the tools provided to him by KFSM. I just think he needs the same equipment that is available to the major tornado prediction centers. OKC. Tulsa. I don’t live in tornado alley btw.

    What a lame this clown Ralph is. Sounds like a salesman without a clue. Let me guess, you have this equipment ready to install…act now and get a second on FREE! Just pay processing.

    My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a
    year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard excellent things about Is there a way I can import all my wordpress
    content into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
