TULSA, Okla. -

Another rare round of wintry weather in late October will cause some ice accumulations for our Tuesday, particularly if you are north and northwest of Tulsa.

Up to 0.5” of ice will quickly accumulate on trees, powerlines, and other elevated surfaces west, north, and northwest of Tulsa through midday Tuesday. This could be enough to cause some power outages. Some slick roads could develop as well, so please drive very carefully!

In the Tulsa metro, temperatures will hug the 32 degree mark for most of the morning. This should keep the majority of our roads and surfaces just wet, but still drive carefully as a slick spot or two could develop on elevated surfaces.

Temperatures will very slowly and very slightly climb this afternoon just above freezing in Tulsa as rain continues, and should climb to at least 32 degrees if not just above freezing in our northwestern counties as well. This should put an end to the icing threat, although some power outages in our northwestern counties could continue as steady north winds blow with ice still on tree limbs and power lines.

We should get another break in the steady rain tonight with temperatures holding in the 30s, before yet another round of moderate to heavy rain arrives Wednesday. But this time around, we expect temperatures to hold above freezing and for this round to fall as plain rain.
