Locations across southeastern OK may experience a longer time of freezing rain before transitioning mainly to sleet before ending as snow. A general idea supports some significant amounts of snow may develop across extreme eastern OK into western Arkansas in the range of 4 to 7 inches of snow. This could be around the Grand Lake region eastward into northwestern Arkansas.
WARN Interactive Radar
Watches, warnings, and advisories may be required for portions of the state soon. Please remember that winter weather forecasts can and do change quickly because of small scale changes in the atmosphere. Changes to the accumulation and location of the expected precipitation may still occur during the next 12 to 16 hours. Travel impacts would be expected with our current Wednesday forecast.
I suppose the best news for a large number of folks will occur late Wednesday night as the main upper level trough clears the region. This will signal a change in the weather pattern, including a few days of sunshine and warmer temperatures. Temperatures Thursday morning will start in the upper teens, and possibly a few degrees colder over a deeper snow-pack than anticipated, before moving into the upper 30s Thursday afternoon with sunshine.
Friday into the weekend supports morning lows in the 20s and 30s followed by daytime highs in the mid to upper 50s across eastern OK. Some 60s will be located slightly west of the Tulsa metro. A weak boundary crosses the region Sunday but only a wind shift will be noted in the forecast regarding sensible weather changes. This weekend also features the “clock change" weekend. We'll be “springing forward" late Saturday night. Spring is not too far away! But we'll first be reminded of winter, soon.
Thanks for reading the Tuesday Morning weather discussion and blog.
Have a super great day!
