Snow, Severe Weather and Sub-zero Wind Chills to Slam Oklahoma This Weekend

Beverly Cantrell - December 31, 2021 11:20 pm

Widespread rain and isolated t-storms are expected overnight. Severe weather is even possible in SE OK as winter weather shoots in from the northwest.

A strong cold front Saturday morning will cause rain to change to a wintry mess of snow, sleet, and ice in N. OK along with a mix of rain and light freezing rain into parts of Central and Southern Oklahoma. Accumulations should stay on the light side with a glaze to 1/4″ of ice and a dusting to 2″ of snow. The higher totals are expected in Northern Oklahoma where travel will be most hazardous. The roads may be a little tricky and icy in spots heading south towards OKC.

After a brief period of drier conditions Saturday afternoon, a second wave of light snow and flurries in the evening brings possibly another dusting to 1″ across the state.

The highest impact from this storm will be the temperatures tumbling into the teens and 20s Saturday afternoon and evening. Sunday morning lows are expected to be in the single digits and teens with wind chills ranging from -5 to -15!

Drip those faucets this holiday weekend and layer up if you head out! Be safe and Happy New Year!
