These storms will continue to move into an environment conducive for further development. The primary concern with these storms tonight will be damaging wind gusts in excess of 50-60mph, the potential for hail but the current environment also show some additional spin with some of these storms is likely so, as a result, an isolated tornado or two cannot be ruled out.

There is a Severe Thunderstorm Watch in effect until 10pm tonight that includes both Oklahoma and parts of the southeastern Kansas.

Timing with severe storms this afternoon-evening should only lasts until just before midnight for areas inside watch box. After that, storms are expected to clear out and continue moving north and east in a more linear form which should decrease the threat for storms reaching severe parameters for our neighbors in Missouri and Arkansas.
