.. WINTER STORM TO AFFECT OKLAHOMA AND NORTH TEXAS…

A WINTER STORM IS EXPECTED TO AFFECT OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN NORTH TEXAS LATE WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY. ALTHOUGH PRECIPITATION TYPES AND AMOUNTS AT ANY SPECIFIC LOCATION REMAIN UNCERTAIN… SLEET… FREEZING RAIN AND SNOW APPEAR LIKELY ACROSS MUCH OF OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN NORTH TEXAS.

A COLD FRONT WILL MOVE THROUGH THE AREA TUESDAY AFTERNOON AND TUESDAY NIGHT BRINGING MUCH COLDER AIR. HIGHS WILL REMAIN IN THE 30S IN NORTHWEST OKLAHOMA ON WEDNESDAY WITH HIGHS IN THE 20S AND 30S AREAWIDE THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY. LOWS IN THE TEENS WILL BE COMMON LATE THIS WEEK. WIND CHILL VALUES WILL BE IN THE TEENS AND 20S DURING THE DAY AND SINGLE DIGITS AT NIGHT.

PRECIPITATION ASSOCIATED WITH THIS STORM SYSTEM WILL LIKELY DEVELOP LATE WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND THURSDAY MORNING… BEGINNING AS A WINTRY MIX ACROSS CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN NORTH TEXAS. PRECIPITATION TYPE ACROSS NORTHERN OKLAHOMA WILL BE ALL SNOW. ALTHOUGH SPECIFICS ARE STILL UNCERTAIN… CURRENT INDICATIONS ARE THAT THE HIGHEST CHANCE OF ACCUMULATING SNOW APPEAR TO BE OVER THE NORTHWEST-HALF OF OKLAHOMA… OR ACROSS PARTS OF OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN NORTH TEXAS NORTH OF INTERSTATE-44. THE HIGHEST CHANCE OF ACCUMULATING ICE WILL BE JUST SOUTH AND EAST OF THIS AREA… MAINLY OVER SOUTH-CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA.

THERE ARE STILL LARGE DIFFERENCES IN THE WEATHER MODELS AS FAR AS PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS… BUT CONFIDENCE IS FAIRLY HIGH THAT THERE COULD BE HAZARDOUS IMPACTS FROM THIS WINTER STORM… PRIMARILY IN RELATION TO TRAVEL. RESIDENTS OF OKLAHOMA AND NORTH TEXAS SHOULD CONTINUE TO MONITOR WEATHER FORECASTS THIS WEEK AS THIS WINTER STORM APPROACHES AND DETAILS EMERGE
