Severe Storms to Return to Texas, Oklahoma Sunday

After a lull in the activity on Saturday, the danger for severe weather will return to the southern Plains later Sunday.

The storm system that started the weekend pushing across the West will begin to emerge onto the southern Plains as the weekend comes to an end.

The result will be for violent thunderstorms to erupt across parts of Texas and Oklahoma Sunday afternoon.

Severe thunderstorms will first target the corridor from Guymon, Oklahoma, to Amarillo, Abilene and San Angelo, Texas, before progressing eastward through the evening hours.

Other cities in the threat zone late Sunday afternoon and evening include Dallas, Wichita Falls, Waco and San Antonio, Texas, as well as Oklahoma City and Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The strongest thunderstorms will be capable of producing damaging winds, large hail and blinding downpours. A couple of tornadoes may also touch down and cause destruction.

Regardless of severity, any thunderstorm will produce lightning. Residents are reminded to seek shelter as soon as thunder is heard to avoid being struck.

On Monday, the severe weather across northern Texas and Oklahoma will be replaced by clouds, rain and cooler air. Howling winds will make the day even less desirable to be outdoors.

The severe weather danger will shift to the Houston and Lake Charles, Louisiana, area on Monday.
