After sunset Friday, the biggest threat for severe weather should shift across southeastern Oklahoma. The threat for a few tornadoes will continue, along with a threat for flash flooding.

Storms will shift east of Green Country late Friday night, with significantly colder air moving in. By early Saturday morning, a wintry mix of rain, sleet, and brief ice will develop west of Tulsa. This should quickly changeover to snow as Saturday morning progresses. Snow accumulation of a few inches is most likely across northeast Oklahoma, with lower amounts across southeast Oklahoma. In addition, wind chills could dip into the teens or single digits Saturday morning with stiff north winds.

Wintry precipitation will come to an end by Saturday afternoon, but some slick travel will be possible wherever the heaviest accumulations occur. Continue to check back for updates over these next few days as details become more clear!
