Oklahoma’s location east of the Rocky Mountains and north of the Gulf of Mexico means that we can be a hot spot for some interesting weather, as the cold air from the mountains collides with warm, moist air from the south. Oklahoma City is home to some of the nation’s best and most experienced meteorologists, with the NOAA National Weather Center located in Norman on the south side of the metro. The region’s technologically advanced weather detection systems give increased warning times for dangerous storms and keep Oklahomans safe.
