Looks like Oklahoma is expecting more snow and ice later this week according to the latest weather forecasts. Maybe we'll get lucky and it will be like a few weeks ago and not be as bad as predicted.
One thing's for sure, it's definitely cold outside. Temperatures will be in the teens in the overnights over the next few days and hovering around the mid-twenties during the day with a chance for rain and snow.

Unlike a few weeks ago it's quite a bit colder and the ground temperatures will be as well. So if we do get any precipitation and it starts sleeting or snow there's a pretty good chance that it will stick and accumulate.
You'll want to stay weather aware over the next couple of days, at least through Thursday just to be on the safe side. Things could get bad weather-wise along with the road conditions so have a plan B, C, and D.

Keep it tuned to your local news and weather channel/station to stay up to date with all the latest updates. Fingers crossed that it passes us by but it's not looking good right now. Better to be prepared, than not.
