Our second winter storm is knocking on the door. It will move in from the west overnight tonight.

We will start out with a light winter mix of sleet and snow western Oklahoma that will progress north and east overnight. Snowfall will ramp up after midnight in central Oklahoma and will be ongoing during the morning commute. This will cause slick and hazardous driving conditions not just in the OKC metro, but across much of the state.

This event will be opposite of Sunday's winter storm in that the heaviest snow will be in northern Oklahoma. This time the northern parts of the OKC metro is expected to see 2 to 4 inches while the south side is forecasted to see only 1 to 2 inches. Heaviest snow totals will likely be found in the region of Woodward to Alva over to Ponca City where 6 to 8 inches will be common with localized higher amounts.

Winter Storm warnings are out for the counties in red where more snow is expected, with Travel Advisories for the counties in orange. The snow will end around lunch time in central Oklahoma and will exit the state by 8 PM.

Once this storm is gone we will see dangerously low temperatures Wednesday morning with wind chills -15° to -10°.
