Ice and sleet early Christmas morning to turn into blowing snow near noon | News
STATEWIDE — The days of near-60s and light coats may be over. Much of Oklahoma will receive ice and sleet starting near midnight Tuesday, which will eventually turn into blowing snow starting near the noon hour on Christmas day. The light fluffy stuff will continue falling for much of Christmas Day as well before tapering off Christmas afternoon into the evening.
Expected snowfall totals are now expected to be less than a few inches due to a warm air mass that will cause ice and sleet in the early morning hours before turning into snow. Earlier models suggested more snow, but with an ice/sleet combination in the mix, snowfall totals may be reduced – with travel conditions still being extremely dangerous throughout Christmas day.
