This worst case scenario is on the table.

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. Totals for OKC and Tulsa will range from a trace to 1".
