Oklahoma seeing more winter-like weather

Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY —  Oklahomans currently are experiencing more winter-like weather.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for much of the state through 6 a.m. Monday. Abundant moisture, coupled with the cold air at the surface and aloft, will allow for sleet and snow to fall in the state.

At 11:45 a.m. Sunday, precipitation was spreading into central Oklahoma and it appeared that northwest Oklahoma was going to be spared much of the snow, as the winter storm moved through southwest Oklahoma and North Texas on a more southerly track. Light snow was falling across parts of Garfield County.

Highs on Sunday will be near freezing. Winds should be lighter. Highs Monday will be in the upper-30s. Wednesday and Thanksgiving Day travel looks good as temperatures climb to the mid-40s to near 50 degrees under a mostly sunny sky.
