**No afternoon Weather Xtreme video… working social media support for the Moore, OK tornado**

A violent tornado moved through Moore, Oklahoma earlier this afternoon… destruction is severe and widespread; at least two schools were hit. We simply don’t know about fatalities or injuries since it happened less than one hour ago. Below is one of the schools hit… photo from KFOR-TV

90 DEGREES POSSIBLE TOMORROW: Here at home, an upper ridge will keep our weather dry tomorrow… we have potential for the first 90 degree day of 2013, but the latest guidance has most places in the 86-89 degree range, which sounds more likely due to the wet soil conditions.

WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY: Scattered showers and storms are likely on these two days, but severe weather is not expected since the upper dynamics will weaken and pass well north of the state. Still, a strong storm or two is certainly possible Wednesday afternoon. Rain amounts should be one inch or less.

FRIDAY AND THE MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND: Delightful weather, with sunny warm days and clear cool nights. Looks like we drop into the cool 50s early Friday, Saturday, and Sunday morning. Highs will be near 80 Friday, with low to mid 80s Saturday and Sunday. The weather stays dry on Monday, Memorial Day.

WEATHER BRAINS: Don’t forget you can listen to our weekly 90 minute netcast anytime on the web, or on iTunes. This is the show all about weather featuring many familiar voices, including our meteorologists here at ABC 33/40. We will produce this week’s show at 8:30 p.m. CT… you can watch live here.

CONNECT: You can find me on all of the major social networks…

Look for the next Weather Xtreme video here by 7:00 a.m. tomorrow…
