There is a MOD today for the Oklahoma City area for what looks like predominantly a large hail threat early trending into a wind event late. There is a tornado threat noted but there isn't a hatched area for it. Still, I don't trust any supercell in that part of the country ... ever.
Help me make my weather site www.wxscout.com better - Please visit and IM me any feedback. Thanks.

Tornado Watch Number 86 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 400 PM CDT Sun Mar 26 2017
The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a
* Tornado Watch for portions of Oklahoma North-central Texas

* Primary threats include... A few tornadoes and a couple intense tornadoes possible Scattered large hail and isolated very large hail events to 3 inches in diameter likely Scattered damaging wind gusts to 70 mph possible
SUMMARY...Multiple corridors of supercell thunderstorms are expected to develop and increase through the late afternoon and early evening hours. Potentially very large hail will be the most common hazard, but a tornado risk is also likely to increase by early evening as low-level moisture continues to increase. The greatest overall severe and tornado risk is expected across south-central/southeast Oklahoma and north-central Texas.
The tornado watch area is approximately along and 85 statute miles east and west of a line from 35 miles west northwest of Ponca City OK to 15 miles southeast of Dallas TX. For a complete depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU6).
REMEMBER...A Tornado Watch means conditions are favorable for tornadoes and severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch area. Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible warnings.
OTHER WATCH INFORMATION...CONTINUE...WW 85...
AVIATION...Tornadoes and a few severe thunderstorms with hail surface and aloft to 3 inches. Extreme turbulence and surface wind gusts to 60 knots. A few cumulonimbi with maximum tops to 500. Mean storm motion vector 23035.

There's a tornado warning for the Houston area currently-active:
Severe Weather Statement National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX 1045 AM CDT WED MAR 29 2017
TXC201-291600- /O.CON.KHGX.TO.W.0028.000000T0000Z-170329T1600Z/ Harris TX- 1045 AM CDT WED MAR 29 2017
...A TORNADO WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 1100 AM CDT FOR CENTRAL HARRIS COUNTY...
At 1044 AM CDT, a severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado was located over Greenway / Upper Kirby Area, moving northeast at 25 mph.
SOURCE...Radar indicated rotation.
IMPACT...Flying debris will be dangerous to those caught without shelter. Mobile homes will be damaged or destroyed. Damage to roofs, windows, and vehicles will occur. Tree damage is likely.
Locations impacted include... Northwestern Pasadena, Bellaire, West University Place, Galena Park, Jacinto City, Midtown Houston, Downtown Houston, Northside / Northline, Greenway / Upper Kirby Area, Second Ward, Greater Heights, Neartown / Montrose, Greater Eastwood, Near Northside Houston, Greater Fifth Ward, Memorial Park, Greater Third Ward, Fourth Ward, University Place and Astrodome Area.
TAKE COVER NOW! Move to a basement or an interior room on the lowest floor of a sturdy building. Avoid windows. If you are outdoors, in a mobile home, or in a vehicle, move to the closest substantial shelter and protect yourself from flying debris.
If a tornado or other severe weather is spotted, report it to the National Weather Service or your local nearest law enforcement agency who will send your report. This act may save lives of others in the path of dangerous weather.
...Friday/Day 8... The ECMWF and GFS are in better agreement in the western U.S., developing a vigorous upper-level trough in the Four Corners region. This coincides with strong moisture advection across the Great Plains. The synoptic setup which the medium-range models have been forecasting for a couple days, could result in a significant severe weather event on Friday into Friday night across parts of the southern and central Plains with tornadoes, large hail and wind damage possible. Due to the potential for a higher-end event on Friday, have added a 15 percent contour where model consensus places the greatest chance of severe weather.
