Statewide Forecast Discussion:
Issued: 7:20 PM CDT, Friday, April 28, 2017
Lots of Rain heading our way over the weekend. First round moves in tonight, with an isolated chance for a severe storm or two after sunset. Snow is looking likely in the panhandle, where some places could exceed 4-8" of snowfall accumulations. Expect the rain to continue overnight and then multiple waves of rain Saturday.
Flooding is a big possibility, especially in the eastern half of the state. 3-6" of rain will be possible, with locally higher amounts.
Chilly Sunday shaping up with highs only reaching the upper 40s and lower 50s for some places. Monday and Tuesday see a return to near normal highs before our next system arrives Wednesday.

First of many waves of showers and thunderstorms move in tonight. Could see a few severe storms initially before an MCS complex from Northwestern Oklahoma. Hail, winds, and flooding rainfall are the biggest concerns, but a tornado or two cannot be ruled out.
