Stephens County is under a sever thunder storm watch for the of the remainder of the evening.

Norman National Weather Service Meteorologist Matthew Day said storms are expected to develop along the western border of Oklahoma around 5 to 6 p.m.

“They are going to be moving eastward,” Day said. “They will probably impact the Duncan area from 7 to 8 p.m. and may last for a couple of hours.”

Day said the most severity of the storms won’t be too bad, and the areas experiencing the worst of it will see winds from 60 to 70 miles per hour. Hail is also possible in these areas, ranging from quarter to golf ball size.

“It is expected to be a line of storms tonight and that’ll probably be over by 10 or 11 p.m. tonight,” Day said. “We’ve got a few more chances tomorrow and Thursday for storms again, but probably not as good of a chance on those days.”

No warnings have been issued for the Stephens County area yet.

“Probably just going to be a brief, heavy downpour,” Day said, noting that barely one-tenth of an inch is possible. “Won’t be very much (precipitation).”
