Flurries will still be possible in the metro through Tuesday night. The bigger story will be the cold and biting wind chills. Temperatures will drop to the upper teens, but with a brisk north wind it will likely feel closer to the single digits.

Wednesday looks better relatively speaking. Mostly cloudy skies are expected with a few breaks in the clouds possible. It will still be cold with highs in the upper 20s but there will be a lot less wind making it more bearable.

Precipitation begins to move into southern Oklahoma and presses northward Thursday morning.

Right now it looks like southwest and central Oklahoma have a good chance of seeing freezing rain and sleet Thursday and Thursday night. We could see a 1/10th of an inch of accumulation in the metro.

A wintry mix looks even more likely for Friday. Travel will be difficult Thursday and Friday with slick roads likely. The timing, track, and precipitation type and amounts will change as we get closer to the event.
