Episode Narrative Several factors came into play for a significant severe weather event over the southern half of Oklahoma. A upper level disturbance moved through the central plains, and a cold front moved into the northwest third of Oklahoma by mid afternoon. An area of surface low pressure developed over far southwest Oklahoma, with a dry line extending to the south of this feature. Thunderstorms developed and quickly become severe, producing very large hail. A few tornadoes also occurred. The storms tracked east during the evening hours, with a line of storms also developing along the cold front that moved southeast. Training of thunderstorms over parts of southeast Oklahoma allowed for flash flooding to develop. Only minor damage was reported with all severe weather. Monetary damages were estimated.
