News 9 Meteorologist Jed Castles says the good thing about this system is it will not bring the bitterly cold temperatures these types of storms usually do. In fact, temperatures will be a bit warmer Wednesday.

As for central Oklahoma, Jed says the metro will see some rain Tuesday that could turn into light snow in the afternoon. The wind will also kick up. There may be gusts up to 35 mph, and the wind chill could be in the teens or low 20s.
