ENID, Okla. — Another winter storm buffeted northwest Oklahoma and coated the area in snow, yet again.

Enid and Garfield County Emergency Management Certified Director Mike Honigsberg said Enid got about 4 inches of snowfall during the night.

“Enid got roughly about 4 inches,” he said. “There may be some higher totals north of town because we were just right on that snow band that hit overnight.”

National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning Monday for Garfield, Noble, Grant, Alfalfa and Woods counties until noon today.

The main impact from the storm will be travel across northwest Oklahoma.

Oklahoma Department of Transportation reported slick and hazardous conditions early Tuesday morning in northwestern, north-central and northeast portions of the state.

Drivers were urged to use “extreme caution” on their morning commutes and were reminded to stay back 200 feet from road-clearing equipment.

The NWS forecast a high of 23 degrees today and a low of 12 degrees tonight.

ODOT encourages motorists to check road conditions before traveling.
