TRAVELER’S ADVISORY in effect for central and western Oklahoma including the Oklahoma City Metro.
According to 4Warn Meteorologist Aaron Brackett,
“The next storm will come to an end Monday night. Snow will overspread much of western and northwestern Oklahoma late Monday into early Tuesday. Roughly north of I-40 and west of I-35, mostly snow will fall with a bit of sleet mixed in. Further south and west, precipitation rates will be less, but sleet and light freezing rain may fall during the day Tuesday.”
“Storm total accumulations in northwest and northern Oklahoma will range from 3-6” with a few locally higher totals as snow moves on Tuesday night.”
“A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for northwestern Oklahoma Tuesday. Right now, this warning does not cover any of the Oklahoma City metro, however snow from 1-2” can be expected by late Tuesday.”
Early Sunday, sleet may mix in with snow in south central and southeast Oklahoma before changing to all snow.
The heaviest snowfall could occur from now until noon along a narrow corridor in southern Oklahoma.
Heaviest accumulations will be found south of I-40 and the Oklahoma City metro targeting cities such as Altus, Lawton, Ada, Chickasha, Duncan, McAlester, and Pauls Valley.
Storm totals in these areas will be in the 3-6” range with a few local higher totals possible.
Storm totals from 1-2″ can be expected in Oklahoma City.
Another round of heavy snow and mixed precipitation will move through Oklahoma Monday night and Tuesday possibly bringing several inches of additional snowfall.
