A significant winter storm will impact the region late Sunday night through early Tuesday morning.

Action area: If you are within the Action area, now is the time to prepare for heavy snow, blizzard-like conditions and snow-covered/packed roadways resulting in very dangerous traveling conditions. Main impacts of the storm will be felt from Sunday night through Monday night.

Ready area (OKC & TUL): Start making preparations for a winter storm which may produce heavy snow. Fierce north winds Monday evening and overnight into Tuesday morning could result in blizzard-like conditions making traveling dangerous. Main impacts of the storm will be felt Monday afternoon through early Tuesday morning.

Timeline: Snow will begin across western Oklahoma Sunday night and intensify and move eastward Monday morning and Monday afternoon.  Initially, precipitation will begin as rain across southern, central/OKC and northern OK with the heaviest of snow expected to start Monday afternoon and evening. Periods of moderate to heavy snow will persist overnight Monday into Tuesday morning before dissipating from west to east.

Impacts: Potential exists for widespread travel disruption throughout this event. Heavy snow and fierce north winds will result in blowing and drifting snow, making traveling very dangerous at the height of the storm and thereafter. Blizzard conditions may develop as visibilities become significantly reduced as a result of the strong northerly winds and blowing snow.
