Light snow expected for Tulsa. Heavier amounts out west
A strong upper storm system will bring a wintry mix to the region this afternoon and evening. Precipitation will transition to mainly snow this afternoon in the higher terrain areas of southeast Oklahoma, spreading into northwest Arkansas this evening. The snow could be heavy enough to accumulate at higher elevations with 1 to 2 inches of snow expected. Slushy road conditions will be possible in the heavier snow bands.
A winter weather advisory is in effect for those areas and motorists should exercise caution while traveling this afternoon and evening, especially at higher elevations. Gusty northwest winds will develop on Wednesday as a surge of colder air moves into the region. Dry and unseasonably cold conditions will continue through the weekend.
