For northwest Oklahoma, temperatures will be colder and rain will change to snow around midday. As the evening turns to night, temperatures will cool and more widespread snow is expected.

Wednesday night, this storm will pull away and the precipitation will become spotty. There could still be some flurries or light snow early Thursday.

Roads and bridges will likely become snow covered in northern and northwest Oklahoma. This means travel will be tricky Wednesday evening and Thursday morning.
