LAWTON, OK (KSWO) – Freezing rain and sleet will be off and on for all of Texoma through Sunday evening. Heavy snow will move in and through Southern and Central Texoma overnight and then exit eastern counties by mid morning on Monday. First, an additional glaze to .50" of ice tonight will be possible, with locally higher amounts. Many areas across Western and Central Texoma have see 1-3" of sleet. We could see additional sleet and snow accumulations of 2-5". Again locally higher amounts will be possible along the heavier bands. No matter what the freezing temperatures and winter precipitation will keep the roads slick and hazardous into Monday morning. Very low to no visibility will be likely tonight as the strong northerly winds will remain 30-40 mph sustained with gusts 45-55 mph. The winds will still be strong around 20-30 mph around sunrise Monday, with gusts around 40 mph possible. Winds will relax through your Monday afternoon.

Temperatures will be in the lower to mid 30s Monday afternoon but will fall well below freezing for the next several nights. As the snow and ice melts during the day it will likely turn to black ice each night.

If you have to be out over the weekend, double check on Oklahoma or Texas road conditions before heading out. ODOT has a new interactive map and you can call them at 844-465-4997 for current Oklahoma road conditions.
