Oklahoma will see showers off and on through the day Tuesday.

Highs will climb into the 50s and 60s. It will be colder in the Northwest.

Winds will be strong Tuesday out of the southeast. Gusts at times will be over 30 MPH.

Hour by hour

Rain and thunderstorms will develop Tuesday night along a cold front.

Precip Chances

A line of storms will press to the south overnight. They arrive in the Oklahoma City metro around midnight.

Heavy rain, intense lightning, and winds up to 45 MPH will be possible.

Precip Overnight

The cold air rushes in Wednesday morning. There will be a window from mid-morning through early afternoon where rain will try to change over to snow.

There is still a chance the precipitation ends as the cold air arrives. This would mean little to no snow accumulation Wednesday.

This will be along and just north of Interstate 44.

Wednesday Precip

If the precipitation hangs around long enough, we could see up to 1 inch of snow in OKC with slightly higher amounts to the northwest. It will be a wet snow, so roads should remain wet to slushy in spots.

Our next wave of precipitation arrives Thursday into Friday. This will bring freezing rain, sleet, and snow to Oklahoma.

Stay tuned to the forecast for the very latest.
