    Weekend Wintry Mix

    The cold front coming through late Friday will bring in a blast of cold air. Temperatures will drop from the low 60s on Friday afternoon to the upper 20s for the high on Saturday.

    The chance of seeing some wintry weather will start late Friday night and stick around through Saturday. Sunday there is still a chance for some isolated showers.

    Friday night through Saturday morning, areas north of I-40 have a higher chance of seeing freezing rain and some light ice accumulation. To the south of I-40, temperatures will be slightly warmer, keeping as light rain or drizzle.

    (ice forecast)

    Going into the afternoon on Saturday, the freezing line will move a bit more to the south and the majority of Green Country has the chance of some freezing rain and light ice accumulation.

    Along the Oklahoma/Kansas border, there is a chance that there could be a few snow flurries.

    Ice accumulation is expected to be less than a tenth of an inch (0.1"), but hazardous travel conditions could appear in areas where we have the freezing rain and ice accumulation. Remember to reduce driving speed and use caution on bridges and overpasses.
