Update (From Mike Honigsberg, emergency management Garfield Co., Enid): Enid area reporting 3.5 inches of snow at 8:32 a.m.

 

7:50 a.m. Scott Curl, senior forecaster with the National Weather Service, Norman Forecast Office:

“What’s kind of come to fruition, you can kind of tell if you’ve looked at the radar this big area where there’s no echoes basically what we call kind of a dry slot. That’s kind of worked into much of central and southern Oklahoma, so I think that’s really going to limit the potential for much in the way of snow from I-40 to the south. There’s still a little bit of a band coming through the eastern Texas Panhandle into western Oklahoma that might clip the metro, but it looks like that is going to lift north. So it looks like right now we’re probably not going to see much here in Oklahoma City.

“On the northern sides, it’s snowing at Guthrie (Logan Co.) and it’s kind of transitioning through Canadian County right now so the north sides could pick up a little bit, but I don’t think they are going to pick up much. Right now, the south edge of the more significant snow is from say Watonga to Kingfisher to Guthrie, and that’s lifting north. And they may see one more little light band that may develop.

“And we could see some additional stuff develop out in western Oklahoma that is not there right now. But it looks like the back edge of really the precip is moving east right now of Lubbock (Texas) and Amarillo (Texas). So once that moves into western Oklahoma, I think we’ll start to see things as far as precip clear out. Western Oklahoma right now is dry, but they could see another band of light snow that might clip areas from say Anadarko to El Reno to Guthrie by late morning to mid-day.

“But again, I don’t think you’re going to see significant accumulations. I think much of the significant accumulations are probably going on right now across northern Oklahoma.

“We got a report awhile ago that 3 inches were already on the ground in Enid. I’m going to guess that probably from there over toward north of Woodward, Alva, Cherokee, Medford, they probably got a couple of inches, 2 to 3  — they may have some isolated amounts already that are higher than that.”
