How much snow will Enid receive?

ENID, Okla. — The transition from rain to snow should be sometime between 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Certified director of Enid/Garfield County Emergency Management Mike Honigsberg said following a briefing with the National Weather Service.

“The freezing line just hasn’t made it solidly into the area yet,” he said. “We have had about 1.5 to 2 inches of rain in the region.”

Between 6 to 10 inches is forecast, but Honigsberg said he believed the numbers will be closer to 4 to 8 inches.

“Overall, we still have a strong winter event coming to the area, so stay vigilant in your preparedness efforts,” he said.

Honigsberg said early snowfall totals include 12 inches in Woodward, 9 inches in Alva, 6 inches in Shattuck, 2 inches in Helena and 8 inches in Laverne.

All of northern and western Oklahoma, including Enid, has been placed in a blizzard warning, effective until 6 a.m. Tuesday, by National Weather Service.

As a result of the impending storm, most area schools and Enid schools — including Enid, Chisholm, Pioneer-Pleasant Vale and Oklahoma Bible Academy — as well as Autry Technology Center and all three Northwestern Oklahoma State University campuses, are closed today. Check for a more complete list of closings.
