Oklahoma will be chilly and cloudy Monday.
Highs will climb into the 30s and 40s, but the northeast winds will create a wind chill.
Monday night our first round of precipitation moves in. There will be scattered showers with light freezing rain in northwest Oklahoma. A glaze of ice will be possible on elevated surfaces. This could mean a few slick bridges, so use caution.
Temperatures will climb above freezing through mid morning and ice will melt.
Tuesday afternoon thunderstorms are likely out west. A line of storms is expected in the metro overnight into Wednesday morning.
Storms will provide heavy rain, intense lightning, and may have some small hail and gusty winds.
Behind the storms, temperatures will fall through the day Wednesday. We may see some light snow in central Oklahoma by Wednesday afternoon.
The final wave of precipitation arrives Thursday into Friday. This final wave is still not completely pinned down.
The concern is for brief heavy icing, sleet, and snow. The exact track of the low pressure system will determine who sees what type of precipitation.
As the storm gets closer to Oklahoma, we will be able to pin down those fine details. This has the potential to be a very impactful winter storm for parts of Oklahoma into New Year’s Day.
