This morning, Brett Roberts with the National Weather Service, Norman Forecast Office said of the possibility of wintry precipitation late this week:
 ”We’re still, obviously, looking pretty closely at all the latest data. Right now, officially the forecast we have for here, around Oklahoma City, we should be staying just above freezing Friday night and Saturday and just get a cold rain. But there are some computer models that are showing at least a chance that we could be right around freezing and run into some problems.
“The significant precipitation is probably not going to start until at least Friday night, if not Saturday morning. At that time, it’s probably going to be relatively close. It could be as warm as 40, but it could be as cool as the low 30s in which case you could have some problems with trees and powerlines and things.”
