The possibilities of a (somewhat) White Christmas are going up! By this weekend, some arctic air will be entrenched across the state with highs only in the 30's in most areas. At the same time, some weak upper level energy will be passing by on Sunday morning, generating light precip that will fall in the form of snow. 

As of now, accumulation amounts look very light, around a dusting in most areas, with far eastern Oklahoma seeing amounts closer to an inch. Most of this will fall on elevated and grassy surfaces.

Thanks to chilly overnight lows and cold air sticking around for Christmas Day, any snow that falls (and sticks) will likely still be on the ground by Christmas morning. 

It has been since 2012 since we've had any snow on the ground on Christmas Day. 

Also, in addition to Sunday's snow chance. There are some signs pointing to the possibility of some freezing drizzle developing on Friday morning as the initial cold air arrives. 

We will continue to constantly refine our forecast for Friday and Sunday's winter weather potential. Be sure to check back online and on-air.
