TULSA, Oklahoma - What a difference a degree or two can make! The expected moisture turned to snow - and quite a bit of it - in Green Country on Saturday. The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for much of northeastern Oklahoma during the storm."It changed over from a wintry mix to snow earlier than expected when the temperature in Tulsa dropped to 32 and 31 north of town," said WARN Team meteorologist Tom Bennett.

"You see how much difference a degree makes."

By 8 p.m., the advisory had been canceled for most of northeast Oklahoma.

EMSA reports that there were a handful of wrecks from the storm, but no more than an average rainy day. There was one serious collision on the Broken Arrow Expressway, however.

"Crews will remain on-call to respond if conditions are necessary. The City of Tulsa has 9,500 tons of salt on hand to respond to winter weather."

Tulsa officially has had 2 inches. Mannford has the heaviest snowfall with 3 inches reported. Three to 4 inches of snow have been reported in the Oklahoma City area, according to WARN Team Meteorologist Travis Meyer.
