National Weather Service issues winter weather advisory for southeast Oklahoma

Icy, frosty & freezing

The Lehigh Valley is not now included in that watch.

Rain and sleet likely before 9pm, then a chance of snow and freezing rain between 9pm and midnight. That increased the sparse snow total for the season to just over 18 inches, or 10 below the average for this time of year, the weather service's data shows.

Today, the high will be near 21 with wind chill values between zero and 10, the weather service said.

Wednesday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low at 19. Rain that could be locally heavy at times. Late Tuesday afternoon, Young, Stephens and Eastland counties were added.

"Right now, they are outside of the winter weather advisory but I wouldn't rule out some light freezing rain in the far northern extremes of Tarrant and Dallas counties", said National Weather Service meteorologist Jason Godwin.

Slick roads and reduced visibility will be concerns mid-evening through overnight Tuesday as freezing rain could add light ice to a accumulation, according to the National Weather Service.

Our area is right on the line between snow and ice as the storm picks up, but forecasts warn some areas will see a half of a foot, while others will get 3 inches and yet others will be dealing with ice and rain. "New snow accumulation of around an inch or less is expected". As it appears now, the snow zone would take place across our far northern counties of Lawrence, Jackson and Jennings. Expect travel delays for both the Wednesday morning and Wednesday evening commute.

The rest of the work and school week brings a return of seasonably cold and dry weather, with Thursday and Friday featuring a mix of clouds and some sunshine and highs in the low to mid-30s.

Thursday: Mostly sunny, with a high at 51.

Chances for snow showers or flurries this morning in the metro Buffalo area.

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy with rain/freezing rain developing from south to north, mixing with/changing to snow north of the Ohio River before ending by daybreak. Another storm is likely on Sunday but this one looks more like rain than anything else.
