Southerly winds will increase again mid morning, with gusts in the 25 to 30 mph range continuing into early evening across parts of northeast Oklahoma. The gustiness should subside by mid evening. Gusty southerly winds will develop again mid morning Monday across northeast Oklahoma and continue into early evening. Isolated severe thunderstorms may move into portions of northeast Oklahoma, generally northwest of Interstate 44, during the late afternoon through mid evening hours on Monday. Large hail and damaging winds will be the primary threats, with the overall tornado threat being very low. The unsettled weather pattern will persist through the middle to latter part of the work week, as a front lingers across the area. Thunderstorm chances will remain increased Tuesday through Thursday, with some potential for severe thunderstorms during this time frame. After a brief lull in the activity Thursday night and Friday, small thunderstorm chances will accompany the approach of another front toward the beginning of next weekend.
