Episode Narrative A cold front entered far northwest Oklahoma during the early morning hours of the 23rd before stalling. Moist air from the Gulf of Mexico moved north into Oklahoma ahead of the front. Also, an upper level storm system approached the southern plains from the Four Corners area of the United States. The stalled cold front began lifting north as a warm front through the eastern half of the Oklahoma panhandle and the northeast Texas panhandle. Thunderstorms developed along this retreating front, with several quickly becoming supercellular. A couple of supercells moved through Harper county, with large hail the main threat. Hail up to the size of softballs was reported with the most intense storms, with smaller sizes reported elsewhere. Another cold front moved out of western Kansas and moved southeast into Oklahoma. A line of strong to severe thunderstorms developed along this boundary, affecting mainly northwest Oklahoma. The main hazards with this line were strong winds and large hail. The line continued southeast into the morning hours, with thunderstorms briefly becoming severe through mid morning of the 24th.
