Sunday is the day the next weather maker arrives, bringing rain and snow to much of the region. This will drop significantly at times, so Monday morning travel will likely be affected. It’s a complex forecast, so we’ll do our best to explain it to you. Fortunately, next week will be sunny and mild with temperatures in the 50s and 60s, so it’s only an issue for one day.

A winter storm warning is in effect for parts of southwestern Oklahoma from Sunday morning through Sunday evening.

A winter weather advisory is in effect for much of Oklahoma, especially the I-40 and I-44 corridor, from Sunday morning through Monday morning.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy with a few rain showers, with a low around 37. Winds will be northeast at 10 to 20 mph.

Sunday: The entire state will see rain initially, followed by a changeover to snow. However, it will happen at different times. Rain will turn to snow faster across western Oklahoma than in central Oklahoma. When comparing Elk City to the metro, Elk City will see snow much earlier on Sunday than OKC. In fact, the metro likely won’t see snowfall until Sunday evening. As you might imagine, the earlier the transition to snow occurs, the longer it will snow. This means western Oklahoma will see higher totals than the rest of the state, but it will be very patchy with varying amounts of snowfall within a local area.

With it being as warm as it is right now, you’ll need heavy snowfall to beat the warm temperatures. The thing is, we actually have this. That’s why models struggled so much. They absolutely dumped snow on us, but we know that won’t be the case with some of the amounts they dumped. However, what they can capture is the range(s) of heavy snow that is able to form. If this happens, we could see higher than expected snowfall amounts.

While impacts are possible Monday morning, afternoon temperatures will be in the upper 40s to near 50 degrees.

The rest of the forecast remains sunny and mild in the 50s and 60s for most of next week.
