Wintry Weather Possible On New Year's Eve, Day

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

Here's the latest on the storm system headed for Oklahoma on New Year's Eve.

People who live and work in the areas in pink need to be ready for a wintry mix Sunday night and Monday, with periods of light freezing rain, sleet and snow.  Areas in green should expect  mainly rain during the day Monday, with the potential for freezing rain/ice early Monday morning and again late Monday night.

Areas in Pink:

As the system approaches Sunday night, we will have an opportunity for a wintry mix in northwest Oklahoma. A Travel Advisory is out for this area and will go into effect 6:00 A.M. Monday lasting until 6:00 A.M. Tuesday.  The current track of the storm would put the heaviest snow north of Oklahoma, through Kansas and eventually Missouri.  Some areas in northern Oklahoma could see a dusting up to 2 inches.

Areas in Green:

Rain is expected to begin late Sunday evening in central and southern Oklahoma, including the OKC Metro, lasting through the overnight hours. Best rain chances will be from midnight until noon on Monday. Some areas could see .5" to 1" of rain. Temperatures will be flirting with the freezing mark Sunday night, which means the potential for some freezing rain/ice/flurries.

Please be aware of slick spots for your Monday morning commute. As we climb above freezing on Monday, expect widespread rain in central and southern Oklahoma, with heavy rain tapering off from west to east after lunchtime.

A cold front will move through the state tomorrow arriving in the Metro around 10:00 P.M. This will eventually drop temperatures below freezing and leave the state with a greater potential for freezing drizzle/freezing fog/flurries. This raises the concern for more black ice and slick spots late Monday night into early Tuesday morning. So please be aware of hazardous travel conditions early New Year's Day as well.
