Bitter cold, winter precipitation comes this weekend to Oklahoma

Bitter cold, winter precipitation comes this weekend to Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:

March comes in like a lion in 2014 with an arctic blast that arrives Saturday night. You can expect sharply falling temps, strong north winds and light wintry precipitation starting late Saturday night and ending Sunday night.

At this time the heaviest snow will likely occur in northern OK where 1-3" of snow seems possible.

The greatest ice accumulation is likely in southeastern OK with up to 1/4" of ice accumulation.

The rest of the area, including the OKC Metro gets mainly light sleet and snow with trace to 1/2" of snow and up to 1/8" of ice accumulation.  Not major but enough to cause slick roads!

The biggest concern isn't necessarily precipitation, it's the dangerously cold temps coming in behind the front!

Temps will fall into the teens by the time you get up Sunday morning and will slowly fall off from there all day Sunday. With north winds 20-30 mph wind chills will drop below zero Sunday.

Sunday night all precipitation will end and temps will drop to near zero in northern OK to 5 above in OKC. Winds chills below zero!

Monday is dry but bitter cold.

A warming trend starts next week and by the end of the week temps back in the 60s!
