A winter storm is expected to give much of Oklahoma a white Christmas Day, which may make travel a hassle for those who are still making their way home for the holidays.

A spokesperson for Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City says the airport has been preparing for the expected Christmas Day snowstorm for a week.

Tulsa International Airport says they anticipate a minimal impact on flight operations for Christmas morning.
