Freezing Drizzle Falling Across Northeast Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

We’re dealing with pockets of freezing mist and drizzle for a few hours this morning with most of northeastern Oklahoma near or below freezing.  This will create hazardous driving conditions on secondary untreated elevated surfaces and some roadways.  Most of the main roadways have probably been sanded and treated, but I would still urge you to use all caution early this morning if temps are near or below freezing in your region.  It appears we (metro region) should move above freezing around the 7 am to 8 am hour while areas northwest of the metro may not reach this level until 10 am.  Locations across southwestern Oklahoma into the I-35 corridor of the state may not move above freezing until noon.  They will have another bout of freezing rain this morning and may be under another winter weather advisory for the morning hours.  Again, this would be southwestern into central Oklahoma.  Our friends at the Tulsa National Weather Service will keep our current winter weather advisory through the morning hours until the entire area gets above freezing. 

Weather Alerts

It’s this system that will bring more rain-thunder into our area this afternoon.  But our temps by this afternoon will be in the upper 30s and lower 40s across northeastern Oklahoma and the lower to mid-40s across far southeastern sections of the state.  The timing for this system should bring it near our immediate area around 1 pm and exiting the far eastern sections by 6 pm.   Another system will approach Friday afternoon and evening from the southwest with rain and some thunder.  Temps will be well above freezing for this event but pockets of moderate to heavy rainfall may be possible and could result in a flood watch issuance for part of east central or southeastern Oklahoma.  Finally, the last system in this current pattern will near late Friday night into Saturday midday with rain and storms likely for the morning to midday hours Saturday.  There will be some thoughts for a few strong to severe storms across the eastern third of the state, more so across extreme southeastern Oklahoma.  The timing of the Saturday system will directly impact the afternoon temps and conditions.  This may allow for improving conditions by early afternoon with decreasing clouds and temps moving to near 70.   The EURO is slower with this system and would not be quite as promising for the afternoon.   More work will be likely for this part of the forecast later today.

WARN Interactive Radar

We should get a nice break Sunday into Tuesday with rather uneventful and pleasant conditions before our next system nears Tuesday into Wednesday with additional rain and thunderstorm chances.
