Get ready for round two! The next Winter Storm is already over land this evening. That means the computer data coming between now and Tuesday will be more reliable than any piece of data that we have seen so far. Here is a look at the storm as of 2 p.m.
The storm is expected to get stronger as it moves toward Oklahoma. This storm is taking a more northerly track than Sunday's storm, so we are expecting heavier snow fall north of Tulsa this time around with Tulsa, again, right on the edge, but this time on the southern edge.
Not far south of Tulsa, the snow amounts drop quickly. Why? Two reasons. Drier air is drawn into this storm from the west and the precipitation will quickly shut off in parts of the area Tuesday afternoon. The second reason for lower snow totals south of Tulsa is because some of the precipitation will be a mixture of rain, freezing rain and sleet.
As of Monday afternoon, places along Interstate 40 were not under any watches, warnings or advisories, but that could change. Make sure you watch 2NEWS Works for You at 5, 6 and 10 p.m. for the latest on our next in a series of Winter Storms.
I say, "next in a series" because a third storm will impact Green Country this weekend! By the way, the groundhog saw his shadow and there are six more weeks of winter! But I don't think we needed a groundhog to tell us that. Anyway, keep the shovels and plows ready. Its going to be a busy week.
