Episode Narrative Two distinct areas of severe thunderstorms developed late on the afternoon of April 30. The first was a cluster of supercells that initiated near a warm front across southwest Kansas and northwest Oklahoma. Several reports of golfball size hail were received between 7:00pm and 9:00pm CDT in Woods and Alfalfa County. More significantly, several tornadoes occurred in the area from near Great Salt Plains Lake to Medford with the easternmost supercell in this cluster. Some minor damage was reported, and the Oklahoma Mesonet site 1 SW Medford recorded a gust to 84 mph near a tornado.
The second area of severe weather initially developed across the Texas Panhandle, but spread eastward into parts of western and central Oklahoma overnight. One supercell affected Harmon County between 9:00-10:30pm CDT, with reports of golfball size hail and a wind gust of 76 mph near Gould. A large complex moved across much of central Oklahoma between 10:00pm-1:00am. While a couple of 1.00 hail reports were received in Oklahoma City, the main impact was severe winds, with numerous reports received from Caddo, Canadian, Grady, and Oklahoma County.
