METRO OKC — Rain will start falling this evening, becoming heaviest after midnight. By the time New Years Eve gets here Monday, we’ll be looking at heavy rain with sleet possible. Northern Oklahoma may see snow as well, but the threat of snow diminishes as you get closer to the metro OKC area.
Showers will increase in intensity and coverage overnight and especially for the first half of Monday. The freezing line will linger in Northern Oklahoma and as a result, rain will switch to freezing rain, sleet and snow for Guymon, Woodward, Alva, Enid and Ponca City. A few inches of snow and sleet accumulations are possible for folks along the Kansas border. Southeastern Oklahoma will see the highest rain total amounts with 1″+ possible in some locations. The rain should push East by sundown on New Year’s Eve and we will ring in the New Year with cold and windy conditions. In fact, wind chills will be in the single digits (Northern OK) and teens when the ball drops so make sure to bundle up! There is a very small chance of patchy freezing drizzle/freezing fog for Central Oklahoma after 12AM on January 1 so stay tuned for potential slick spots New Year’s Day morning.
