A Wild Night in Oklahoma

The storm reports below show what a wild night it was in Oklahoma. Combination of tropical moisture and summertime heat led to an extremely unstable, and uncapped atmosphere across Oklahoma as noted below. Storms developed in north-central Oklahoma and southwest Kansas during the late afternoon hours. By early evening storms developed a southward movement as they encountered very favorable thermodynamics. Storms eventually moved through central and western Oklahoma under northwest flow aloft. It was quite a night for the state! At the height about 34,000 customers were without power.
