Powerful Storm Will Dump Snow On Parts Of Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

A powerful storm system will move into the southern plains late Monday night and will exit Oklahoma late Tuesday night. Most of the state will see some much-needed precipitation, with the highest amounts in western Oklahoma.

The upper level storm will correspond with a quick blow of subfreezing temperatures, giving the potential for winter precipitation in many locations.

Folks in the blue region, including most of western and northwestern Oklahoma, should be ready for hazardous road conditions beginning early Tuesday morning through early Wednesday morning. This is where the heaviest snowfall is expected. Some localized areas from Hobart to Clinton and up to Weatherford, could see 4 to 6 inches of snow.

Folks in the gray region, including the Oklahoma City metro, need to be aware of slick spots, especially on bridges and overpasses during this time frame.

Rain will begin early Tuesday morning, changing over to snow Tuesday afternoon. Above-freezing soil temps, and the slow arrival of below-freezing air temperature, will cut into accumulations in this region. Snowfall totals are expected to range from a trace to around 1 inch in this area. Temperatures will be dropping into the upper 20s Wednesday morning, so any rain/snow is expected to impact the roadways.
