TULSA - We have a frigid start to our Friday with temperatures in the teens and lower 20s. Breezy northerly winds will make some areas feel as cold as -5º!
Today, a weak wave of energy spreads some light snow over southern Oklahoma. Closer to Tulsa, we will likely see some snow flurries, maybe even a period of light snow.
Saturday is a day that must be watched. All indications are that we will see snow Saturday morning. As the day goes on and we warm up just a little, the snow could change to sleet, then freezing rain and eventually to all rain by Saturday night. The question is "what are the surface temperatures when the snow changes to rain?" If it's below 32 degrees, then we could have freezing rain on top of the snow. Snowfall amounts on Saturday could range from a dusting to 4 inches across the region. Again, it all depends on the track of the heaviest snow bands.
Friday: Overcast with a chance for snow flurries and light snow.
