430 PM CT Oklahoma Weather Update (12/22/2011)


Areas of precipitation will continue to affect portions of northern and central Oklahoma this afternoon. The precipitation will affect areas mainly along and north of Interstate 40, although the precipitation will be very light in most areas south of a line from Seiling to Hennessey to Stillwater. Snow, freezing drizzle, drizzle and rain will be possible. The snow and freezing drizzle will be most likely in parts of northern Oklahoma. The freezing drizzle may produce a light coating of ice on elevated and metal surfaces such as cars, signs, and maybe even a few bridges and overpasses. Drivers need to be aware of the possibility of a few slick spots forming.

Elsewhere, a cold front that was located from near McAlester Oklahoma to Gainesville Texas will continue to move southeast. Breezy north winds will continue behind the front with speeds mainly ranging from 15 to 25 mph with gusts over 30 mph in some locations. These winds are causing reduced visibility and travel problems in parts of Harper County into the Panhandle by blowing the snow that fell earlier this week. Some roadways in western parts of Harper County into the Oklahoma Panhandle have become slick. The precipitation will remain possible into this evening.
