1-A lot happening this morning.

A GENERAL risk exists roughly at I-35. A MARGINAL RISK runs from Thackerville up through Tulsa, then northeast. The SLIGHT risk runs from just east of Dallas to Sallisaw then northeast out of the state. A SEVERE TSTM WATCH is in effect for the eastern 1/3rd of the state until 10am. In some areas, it will be extended. Like I said, check your forecast if you plan to travel.
