Strong to severe storms possible Saturday night

Strong to severe storms possible Saturday night

FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY FOR SATURDAY - which means we're monitoring the risk of severe thunderstorms Saturday evening.

A strong cold front is approaching eastern Oklahoma, and out ahead of that front we're dealing with very spring-like mild, humid, and windy conditions. High temperatures will struggle to get beyond the upper 60s for Sunday.

The primary concern for our area will be damaging winds, along a line of storms that will be moving in after 10pm, Saturday. Luckily, rain looks unlikely Saturday morning and afternoon, which is good news for Mizzou's homecoming, but a line of storms will approach mid-Missouri after 9 PM.

This will spark showers and storms in Oklahoma Saturday evening, which will march eastward towards Arkansas by nightfall.

Stay with the 5 On Your Side Weather team for the latest adjustments and updates to the weekend forecast. The further west you live, the more severe weather you will see in your neighborhood. Severe weather is not expected today and rain shouldn't be much of a problem for area football games.

The threat of severe weather will diminish quickly after midnight into early Sunday morning as storms move east into Arkansas. Sunshine will return for Sunday, as well as lighter winds and cooler temperatures.
