LAWTON, OK (RNN Texoma) - Good morning Texoma! Today is a First Alert Weather Day for the snow and ice impacting travels. There is currently a Winter Weather Advisory issued for most of Texoma. We are currently seeing temperatures drop to around freezing. This is turning the rain into snow showers across most of the western and northern half of the viewing area. As temperatures continue to fall we will have to watch for slick sports on the already wet roadways. We will continue to hold on to snow showers as we head into the afternoon. The highest accumulations look to be from Paducah east to Vernon and Frederick. Snow totals could hit 6 inches in some of those areas. Central Texoma counties could see 1-3 inches of snow with a few localized areas around 4 inches. Snow totals look low for our far nothern, northwestern, southern, and southeastern Texoma counties. We will see this system clear by 6PM. High temperatures this afternoon will only be in the mid 30s. Tonight we could see a re-freeze on the roadways causing some slick spots as temperatures heading into Sunday morning drop into the mid 20s.

Tomorrow we are going to clear out and some sunshine return. Tomorrows high temperatures will be in the mid 40s.

We will stay dry all the way through Wednesday. Temperatures throughout the work week will climb back into the upper 50s and possibly lower 60s. A few rain chances build in next Thursday, and a small chance some wintry precipitation on Friday.
