Oklahomans dreaming of a white Christmas may get their wish and then some, National Weather Service forecasters said Sunday.
Much of the state, including the Oklahoma City area, is under a Winter Storm Watch that goes into effect just about the time Santa will be sliding down chimneys Christmas Eve and through Christmas Day.
Forecasters expect widespread heavy snow is expected and should be heaviest during the day Tuesday, tapering off to flurries Christmas evening. High winds could cause blowing and drifting snow.
The forecast calls for 2 to 6 inches of snow with heavier totals possible in some areas. The snow could cause hazardous travel conditions across the area, which includes most of the state south and west of Tulsa.
