Bates is here with an update on winter weather. We are anticipating your Sunday. Now we’ll start the day with rain, but as we move through Sunday afternoon and into the evening, we’ll start to see that transition to snow. But in general, it will take some time for that snow to accumulate. This is very wet, very wet snow and the temperatures, they’ll be hovering just above freezing. It really depends on where you are in the state as to how much snow you will get. In western Oklahoma, your temperatures will be a little cooler. also. There are some heavier snow bands, isolated ones that will increase this accumulation, especially as the day goes on. So I want to really walk through the forecast tool here when we expect the rain to move to snow early tomorrow morning. In fact, most of us see very cold rain. We are starting to see snow in the Panhandles, Oklahoma, Texas and far western Oklahoma. Now, tomorrow morning, if you’re up early in the morning, we’re talking very heavy and cold rain up and down the I 35 corridor including OKC. But we’re starting to see that move into the snow and far western Oklahoma. In fact, even winter storm warnings are in place for the state’s far southwest. I think by midday tomorrow, we’ll see more of this accumulation building across the southwestern portions of Oklahoma. But as this continues, the entire weather system shifts toward the east. We’ll start to see those temperatures drop a bit and more wet snow accumulation, especially toward I-35 in the evening. Once we get past sunset, that’s when I think we’ll see more very wet snow across central Oklahoma that will continue into the night. Then by early Monday morning, it’s all out of here and then heading east. So, overall snow accumulation won’t be significant for most of us. Not only is the ground temperature warm, it actually has been. It’s been quite warm the past few days, and tomorrow the temperature will once again hover around the 30s for most of us. So, where these heavier snow bands are converging mainly southwest Oklahoma toward Hollis, that’s where more of the heavier snow will be. About three to five inches of snow. But I think there are some heavier bands, even toward Clinton, Weatherford, and then as we head toward the I-44 eastbound corridor, including OKC. Including Tulsa, there will be very wet snow, most of which will accumulate on the grass, but there will be some areas where we will start to see it on some roads that are not as heavily traveled. There are more very wet roads through it, and more areas looking at that wet snow. We’re looking at more problems across far western Oklahoma. now. Make sure you stay up to date with KOCO news
