A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for all of northeast Oklahoma including Tulsa until Thursday night. This is the area expecting the most snow and the most travel problems. The rest of the area is under a Winter Weather Advisory which indicates the potential for travel problems.
I'm expecting 3-5 inches of snow across the Tulsa metro area and along and north of Highway 412. Most of this will occur Thursday morning. 4-6 inches of snow are possible across far northeastern Oklahoma into southeastern Kansas. 1-3 inches of snow are possible south of Tulsa south of Highway 412.
Prior to the snow, we could get freezing rain and sleet. This could lay down a thin layer of ice underneath the snowfall which could create some slick driving conditions. Either way, watch out for travel problems Thursday and again on Friday since the temperatures will remain below freezing allowing the snow to remain on the ground. Schools could be closed Thursday and again on Friday.
The storm should move out during the day on Thursday leaving the snow behind. Highs on Thursday will only be in the 20s. Look for single digits Friday morning followed by highs in the 30s.
There is another storm on the heals of this one that will try to bring us snow on Sunday. I'll have details on that as we get closer.
In the meantime please look for more updates on Facebook and Twitter under Frank Mitchell.
