A winter storm warning in effect today for much of western Oklahoma, extending almost into the Oklahoma City metro area on the west side, with much of the eastern metro in an advisory or watch mode, as heavy snow began making its way into OKC right before 10 a.m.
Many schools and offices in western Oklahoma have closed for the day as totals in that part of the state could reach 4-to-8-inches before the system moves out later tonight. Early reports from the Clinton area are about 2-to-3-inches on the ground so far. Portions of the OKC area on the west could get 3-to-6-inches of snow while the eastern portion could get an inch to maybe 3 inches.
Since the temps are expected to fall into the 20s tonight, there could be some slick spots on roads leading into the metro tomorrow morning. Motorists should take it easy as they make their way into work. Surprisingly, the forecast for tomorrow is for temps between 48 and 51 under sunny skies.
Early forecasts are for another chance of light snow around Friday.
