A quarter to half an inch of ice, combined with 15 mph winds is enough to cause tree limb damage, scattered utility interruptions and hazardous traveling conditions.

One half to one inch of ice is enough to cause numerous and prolonged utility interruptions, excessive tree limb damage and extremely hazardous traveling conditions. This worst case scenario is on the table.

Complete List Of Warnings

Snow will begin to develop Saturday morning and afternoon across western portions of Oklahoma, spreading into central and northern Oklahoma Saturday afternoon and evening. Snowfall amounts will be heaviest near the Kansas-Oklahoma state line - enough to result in snow covered roadways.
