Winter Storm Warning Issued For Several Okla. Counties
A winter storm warning has been issued for several Oklahoma Counties until 6 p.m. Wednesday.
Temperatures will stall out Tuesday in the mid 30s. Wind chills will be in the 20s through the day.
We do have showers ongoing across the state Tuesday morning with some freezing drizzle in the northwest.
The winter storm warning is for Oklahoma, Lincoln, Grady, McClain, Cleveland, Pottawatomie, Tillman, Comanche, Stephens and Garvin County. This is the zone where some of the higher snowfall totals are expected. It will likely be a razor fine edge with the least amount of snow on the north side of Interstate 44 and the highest totals on the south side. Stay tuned through the day Tuesday, as this storm system evolves.
There will be the potential for up to a ¼ of an inch of freezing rain in the Southeast. As the storm begins, we will likely see some sleet initially. Looking at the sleet zone, you can see where we are expected up to 1.5 inches of sleet. If the sleet totals are higher, this can cut into the snow totals. If we transition to snow sooner with less sleet, the snow totals could be higher.
Snow total are expected to range from 2 to 5 inches in central Oklahoma, with some higher amounts to the south. Again, a slight change in the track or intensity will cause a shift in these totals.
Travel will likely be very tough where the precipitation is the heaviest through the day on Wednesday.
Trackers will be out all day, and we will keep you updated!
