LAWTON, OK (RNN Texoma) - Good afternoon Texoma! I hope you all have been able to get outside and enjoy the snowfall. We still have snow falling in portions of the viewing area, along with some sleet, freezing rain, and rain. This system as a whole should clear out of Texoma by 7PM this evening. Make sure you are watching for some slick spots on the roadways as we head into the overnight. Temperatures tonight will drop to around freezing by 10PM, and then all the way into the mid to upper 20s by 7AM tomorrow. These cold temperatures and the already wet roadways will freeze quickly causing black ice. The roads can become very slick and dangerous. I highly recommend staying off the roadways until tomorrow during the later morning hours, to let some of that ice melt.

Tomorrow we will warm up into the low 40s by lunch time and the mid 40s by 4 or 5PM. Expect plenty of sunshine to return for the end your weekend. Monday morning low temperatures will again drop into the low to mid 20s, and will freeze whatever moisture is left on the roadways. Monday afternoon we should see roadways dry up as temperatures look to hit the low to mid 50s.

Tuesday more warm weather returns along with some cloud cover. Highs will be in the mid 50s.

Late Wednesday night, Thursday, and early Friday morning some precipitation is possible, but chances look very low. High temperatures for the end of the work week will be in the mid to low 50s.

Next weekend expect temperatures in the 50s and partly cloudy skies.
