More Moisture On The Way

While we look back on the rain from Saturday and Sunday, it's difficult to get excited about the rainfall amounts. Yes, any moisture is great at this point, but if we're going to fill the lakes and break this drought, we need MORE! Thankfully, it appears we're in for more.

However, it might come at the expense of some hazardous winter weather! A nice change, you might say, from the spring-like systems we've had move through lately. There will be plenty of time for lots more of those! First, though, we're in for another round of winter. At this point, I think we're all in agreement that we'll take any precipitation we're given!

Thoughts right now are for western, northwestern, and north central Oklahoma to see the most accumulated snow. That could range anywhere from 3-6 inches with localized areas seeing potentially more. Central Oklahoma, including the OKC Metro, will likely start as rain early Tuesday morning before it turns into snow. Timing the changeover will be tricky as the cold air could lag a bit behind the moisture, causing the rain-to-snow changeover to take place much later in the day.

Either way, we'll welcome the moisture and hope more of these systems find their way into Oklahoma. Stay with News 9 for the latest.
