National Weather Service issues winter weather advisory for Norman

By Monday afternoon, another snow storm hits the region. School delays and closings are possible.

The heaviest snow will fall from noon to 8 p.m. Be prepared for slippery roads. Temperatures will warm above freezing by early afternoon with highs in the upper 30s and low 40s.

"There will probably be accumulation at least on elevated surfaces", Godwin said. Residents in Omaha, Nebraska; Wichita, Kansas; Kansas City and St. Louis, Missouri; and Oklahoma City should prepare for slick travel.

Additional snowfall is again likely across the area Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning, according to the weather service. So while this storm seems like it should be relatively mild, those of you crossing your fingers for a snow day have a fair shot of that wish coming true soon. New snow and sleet accumulation of 3 to 5 inches is expected overnight, tapering off around 2 a.m.

Saturday Night: Showers likely and possibly a thunderstorm.

The snow is expected to develop mid- to late morning and could fall at a rate of 1 inch per hour, according to a warning from NWS Taunton. "This could result in periods of freezing rain, sleet and snow". Roads will certainly be impacted and travel may be hard on untreated roads. The watch is in effect for 12 NY counties and parts of northern Pennsylvania. Sporadic tree damage and power outages may occur. This storm will need to be watched as a slight shift in the track will create either heavier snow, or lighter snow, or even more rain.

A more organized storm will take advantage of colder air slipping into the area Monday night.

The rain-snow line as of now is projected to be south of Crawford and Morrow counties, and if that line changes, so will the amount of snow received in this part of the state.
