MOST OF THE SNOW HAS TAPERED OFF THIS EVENING BUT NOT BEFORE A
NARROW MESOSCALE BAND OF VERY HEAVY SNOW DUMPED 5-7 INCHES
NORTH AND NORTHWEST OF TULSA. THE SECOND ROUND OF PRECIPITATION IS
ALREADY UNDERWAY HOWEVER AS AREAS OF SNOW ARE DEVELOPING ACROSS
PARTS OF CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA AS WARM ADVECTION

EXPANDED AND EXTENDED THE WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY TO INCLUDE OUR
ENTIRE FORECAST AREA FROM NOW UNTIL MIDNIGHT SATURDAY NIGHT. THE

OKLAHOMA AND FAR NORTHWEST ARKANSAS SATURDAY MORNING INTO EARLY

NORTH SATURDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. ALTHOUGH THE FREEZING
RAIN/DRIZZLE IS EXPECTED TO BE LIGHT...TRAVEL PROBLEMS ARE LIKELY
EVEN DOWN TO THE RED RIVER GIVEN THE VERY COLD ANTECEDENT
TEMPERATURES.
