Snow Moving Out Of Western And Central Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: 6:15 P.M.

Light snow continues across central Oklahoma and is coming to an end across western Oklahoma here early this evening. By mid-evening, the snow will be ending quickly across central Oklahoma including the OKC metro.

Snow accumulations will continue to be light this evening but please watch out for scattered slick spots. Temperatures will continue to fall into the single digits by late evening. You factor in the north winds at 15-25mph gusting to over 40mph at times. The real feel or what it feel like to your exposed skin will be dropping below zero this evening. Overnight we'll see skies clear out and north winds relax to 10-20mph. Setting the stage for some of the coldest temperatures we've seen since January of 2014. So bundle up & stay warm everyone! 

UPDATE: 3:30 P.M.

Our quick hitting storm system is quickly approaching the OKC metro as temperatures continue to fall. The snow will only last an hour or two but still could produce some slick spots & reduce visibility for a bit. The snow will be tapering off from west to east across OKC between 6-8pm. 

The other big story this evening will be the high winds & biting wind chills. North winds will continue 20-30mph with gust to over 40mph at times this evening. As temperatures fall into the low teens to upper single digits. This will produce wind chills below zero to nearly -15°.  Temperatures will fall into the single digits here overnight as skies clear out after midnight. 

Stay warm this evening & we'll continue to keep you posted on News 9 & on social media. 

UPDATE: 1:00 P.M.

Snow is currently increasing in the panhandles. Precipitation still on track to hit the OKC metro area between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Road temperatures in the metro are currently above freezing, but will be dropping quickly throughout the rest of the day. 

News 9 Chief Meteorologist David Payne is tracking the storm. Look for updates at News9.com, on your News 9 app and live on the News 9 Facebook page.

Temperatures will free fall through this afternoon into the 20's by 4 p.m.

Dangerous wind chills will make it  feel like the single digits. Wind chills will eventually drop below zero.

Snow looks likely in OKC between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. Due to high winds, the snow will likely be falling horizontally. Far western Oklahoma could also see some sleet. Winds will gust 20-40 mph.

Accumulations are expected to be small, ranging from 2 inches in the northwest, to a dusting across the OKC metro. Snow will wind down in central to northern Oklahoma around 7 p.m.
