    Severe Weather Reports

    This article is a focus on document severe weather reports for 2015. Severe weather is defined as wind over 58 mph, hail over inch in diameter, and/or a tornado. Information will be updated as new data comes in after events occur. Please feel free to contribute and data or photos to be added.

    **For easier viewing, to the right of each date you will have three options. If you click on "[Hide]" it will hide that date to reduce how much is visible at once.**

    4/3 Update - Replaced basic storm reports map with SPC Max Outlook verification images. The outlook chosen will be the one that reflected the greatest Day 1 risk area in Oklahoma and then overlay that with the storm reports.

    So there was only 5 confirmed tornadoes?

    There was talk of a brief touchdown near the fairgrounds. Was that not the case?

    Information will be updated as surveys are completed and the NWS releases their findings. Just because a spotter claims to have saw something doesn't mean that is what it was.
