Severe weather expected for Ada area today

Ada — Thunderstorms, wind gusts and hail may be in the cards for Ada this morning.

The severe thunderstorms that developed Wednesday afternoon in southwest and western Oklahoma are expected to move into the central region by this morning, said forecaster Daryl Williams with the National Weather Service in Norman. The storms will likely arrive in Ada between sunrise and noon today.

Forecasters are predicting a low risk of tornadoes this morning, but winds up to 70 mph and golf ball-sized hail are possible, Williams said.

Showers and thunderstorms are likely before 6 p.m. today, but the weather should improve this evening as the storms move into eastern Oklahoma. There’s a 20 percent chance of showers early Friday morning.

Today’s highs will be in the mid-70s today but will drop to between 60 and 65 degrees by evening. The high Friday will be about 80.
