OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The National Weather Service says parts of Oklahoma could see severe weather this week with baseball-sized hail, powerful winds and isolated tornadoes possible in some areas.

Forecasters say the severe weather is possible Wednesday in much of Oklahoma including the Oklahoma City and Tulsa areas. The weather service says the stormy weather is likely between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m.

The Storm Prediction Center in Norman says the state is at a slight risk Wednesday for severe weather. On Thursday, the eastern portion of Oklahoma is again at a slight risk.

Forecasters say hail as large as baseballs or tennis balls is possible Wednesday along with winds of up to 70 mph and isolated tornadoes.

Also, parts of western Oklahoma have a very high to extreme wildfire risk Wednesday.
