(KFVS) - Good morning, it is Tuesday, May 4.
A First Alert Action Day continues this morning due to the threat for tornadoes, large hail and damaging winds.
We are watching a complex of storms develop across northeast Oklahoma.
The storms are about to move into a favorable environment for severe weather.
This complex of storms will enter our western counties shortly after midnight, move towards the Mississippi River between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m., and exit the area around 6 a.m.
The main threat with these storms is winds gusting over 70MPH with a secondary large hail threat.
The tornado threat appears low at this time however, there could be quick spin up type tornadoes along this line.
Wind damage and numerous power outages are expected during the pre-dawn hours on Tuesday.
Make sure you have a way to receive warnings and stay with First Alert Weather for the latest.
