NWS upgrades watch to Winter Storm Warning


The National Weather Service in Norman, Okla., has a Winter Storm Watch issued Dec. 3 to a Winter Storm Warning for southern Oklahoma and North Texas, effective Thursday morning through Friday afternoon.

Significant amounts of snow, sleet and freezing rain are expected over parts of southern Oklahoma and North Texas. Snow and sleet are expected to impact near and north of a line from Lawton, Okla., to Shawnee, Okla. In Texas, freezing rain will be the main concern.

Several periods of precipitation are expected to start early Thursday and continue through Friday afternoon, including snow over parts of central and southern Oklahoma and North Texas.  Although widespread accumulations will be light, some locations from far southwestern Oklahoma and North Texas could see more than a few inches of snow by the time precipitation ends Friday.

High temperatures in the 20s and 30s are expected Thursday through the weekend. Lows will be in the teens and 20s. Wind chill values could dip into single digits during the night, and in the teens during daylight hours.
