Enid projected to get 4-5 inches of snow as it ends this afternoon

ENID, OK — Enid has received over 3 inches of snowfall as a winter storm passes through northwest Oklahoma.

Enid and Garfield County Emergency Management Director Mike Honigsberg said as of 10 a.m. Enid had received an average of 3.5 inches of snowfall.

“I think we’re OK,” Honigsberg said. “This isn’t the end-of-the-world thing the TV stations were talking about.”

The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning that remains in effect until 6 p.m.

Honigsberg said the snowstorm will continue into the afternoon.

“We’ve got another wave here ...” he said. “Once that ends we’ll probably be looking at 4 inches, maybe 5, when it’s all said and done.”

The snowfall has been light, but constant, with little wind.

“This is a good way to get a snow,” Honigsberg said. “I’m just glad we didn’t get 50 mph winds.”

Enid Police Department Capt. Jack Morris said police have responded to three calls of motorist sliding off the road due to the snow but have not had any reports of collisions.

He said police were advising against any unnecessary travel.

“The roads are slick out there and it’s still snowing,” Morris said.

Enid police were working two major accidents as of 11:30 a.m., one with injury and a rollover on South Van Buren.

Sheriff Jerry Niles said his office has not received any reports of accidents this morning.

“As long as you take your time, turn on your headlights, clear all the snow off all the glass on your vehicle, headlights and taillight housing you’ll be OK,” he said. “We haven’t had that many calls for people in ditches, just a couple so far this morning.”

Oklahoma Department of Transportation is reporting roadways in northwest Oklahoma are slick and hazardous. Travel is discouraged.
