Severe weather expected for OKC metro area
It’s not uncommon to have tornado watches and warnings issued in October and the National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch for many counties near the Oklahoma City metro for Saturday evening.
The combination of humid conditions and above-average air temperature for this time of year, along with a line of storms canvassing most of the state from this morning on, are responsible for the watches.
