Oklahoma doesn't need more rain, but much of the state will likely be dodging downpours through the weekend and into next week. 

The National Weather Service in Tulsa has rain chances in the forecast from Friday through Wednesday, with some days showing potential for severe weather.

"Daily thunderstorm chances will continue along with both severe weather and heavy rainfall concerns," the forecast states. "Currently, the period of Saturday night through Sunday night appears supportive of more widespread storm coverage.

"Instability will be very high both Saturday afternoon and Sunday afternoon and supportive of severe weather. Also, storm motions are likely to be rather slow which will allow for areas of heavy rainfall."

The Storm Prediction Center in Norman has Tulsa in a marginal risk category of severe weather through Sunday, with primary risks being hail, damaging winds and a potential for flash flooding.
