NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - The National Weather Service says severe thunderstorms are in Oklahoma’s forecast.

The agency’s Storm Prediction Center says there is an enhanced risk of severe thunderstorms on Monday in parts of northwest and west central Oklahoma, including the Woodward and Guymon areas. Central and southwestern Oklahoma, including Oklahoma City and Lawton, will have a slight risk of severe thunderstorms.

Thunderstorms are expected to develop in far western Oklahoma late Monday afternoon and intensify as they move across northern and central Oklahoma Monday night. The primary hazards will be damaging winds and large hail, but forecasters say there is also a chance for tornadoes across western and northwestern Oklahoma before sunset.

There is a marginal risk that severe thunderstorms could produce hail and strong winds in central and southern Oklahoma on Tuesday.
