Daily Historical Weather for May 6
Severe weather began on this day back in 2007, and continued until the early hours of the 7th. A surface low pressure system in Colorado translated southeastward with thunderstorms developing in northwest Oklahoma early in the afternoon. A supercell that developed over central Oklahoma produced two small tornadoes in Seminole County. Minor damage was reported near State Highway 9, where a large tree fell onto a trailer and pushed it off its foundation.
During the late evening of May 6, 1985, severe thunderstorms developed over parts of northwest Oklahoma. Hail up to baseball-size fell just northeast of Gage, and golf ball-size hail was common. A tornado was spotted near Tangier, in Woodward County. Flooding of many low lying areas occurred after six inches of rain fell from the storms.
