10 AM CT Oklahoma Weather Update (12/25/2011)


This morning light snow was falling in southwest Oklahoma and far western North Texas, mainly west of a line from Crowell to Hobart. Farther east, a mix of light rain and snow extended to near Wichita Falls and Lawton, with movement toward the north. Dry air near the ground was limiting the intensity of the precipitation, but as rain and snow continues, it will become locally heavier. At 8 am, snow was nearing moderate intensity around Altus. Temperatures in the region were mainly above freezing, but Altus had dropped to 32 degrees. Light accumulation of snow may occur, especially on grassy surfaces, but also for a brief time on bridges and overpasses. Drivers should use caution. Despite the cloud cover, the sun will provide some heating today, which should prevent any significant travel problems. Cloud cover and precipitation will spread slowly northward east during the day, affecting more of southern and western Oklahoma. Elsewhere skies will be clear or partly cloudy to start the day, and clouds will slowly increase.
