From News9 meteorologist Stephanie Malone

Many Oklahomans woke up to a slippery commute Tuesday morning. The northern portions of Oklahoma experienced light snow, the southeastern portions saw freezing rain, and everywhere inbetween saw freezing drizzle and flurries. 

There will be a continued chance to see freezing drizzle throughout Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, and temperatures will not climb over freezing Tuesday afternoon or evening, so many ice patches on side streets will not thaw out. There will also be a chance for some fog on the commute Wednesday, and drivers are urged to be alert.

Wednesday evening the temperatures will eventually climb over the freezing mark, and into Thursday, which will develop into a good chance of rain Thursday morning and throughout the day.

Winter Weather

Oklahoma will then see partly cloudy skies Friday and Saturday, until our next batch of arctic air makes it's way into the state on Saturday.  We will then have a continued chance for some freezing rain on Sunday with temperatures in the 20s.
