Tornado Watch Extended, Expanded Eastward

Posted: Updated:

A tornado watch remains in effect through 2 a.m. for north-central Oklahoma, including some counties in the Tulsa's Channel 8 viewing area.

The watch includes Alfalfa, Beaver, Beckham, Blaine, Custer, Dewey, Ellis, Garfield, Grant, Greer, Harmon, Harper, Jackson, Kay, Kingfisher, Kiowa, Major, Noble, Osage, Pawnee, Roger Mills, Washita, Woods and Woodward counties.

Forecasters predicted a severe weather outbreak across the southern plains Saturday and it's already been a stormy day with more than two dozen tornado reports across Oklahoma, Kansas and Nebraska.

As of 6:30 p.m., two tornado warnings were ongoing in northwestern Oklahoma. Those storms are expected to move to the east-northeast and additional development to the south is expected later this evening.

Those storms that form to the south are expected to impact the Tulsa area later tonight.

It follows a Friday that saw a tornado touch down in Norman at about 4 p.m., causing lots of damage and minor injuries to about a dozen people. Other tornadoes were reported in southwestern and central Oklahoma, but no damage or injuries were reported in those storms.

Tulsa's Channel 8 has storm crews out and about today and we will continue to monitor the situation and update you online and on the air throughout the day.
