LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - Just like last weekend, another round of winter weather is expected to move through Texoma Saturday morning.
This all gets kicked off overnight Friday when the clouds start to thicken up over western Texoma. Those clouds will spread over the rest of the region by midnight. We're really not expecting any cold rain or light wintry mix until the early morning hours of Saturday. Once we get to about 7 a.m. Saturday, the snow will begin to fly for areas along and north of Highway 7 and Highway 62. This will stay as snow over southwest Oklahoma. Those across north Texas will likely see a wintry mix for much of the morning before changing over to a light snow.
And just like last week, this will be a fairly quick-moving storm with not much time to dump snow. This will be exiting southeast parts of our viewing area around Bowie, TX by 3 p.m. Saturday. In the end, we could see up to 2" of snow for areas like Lawton, Altus, Hobart, Mangum and Hollis. Other spots in Texoma will see a dusting of snow.
Another round of light snow will move through late Sunday evening into Monday morning. Accumulations less than an inch are possible here, too.
Due to this being a fluffy snow with warm ground and temperatures just above freezing, we're not expecting major impacts to local roads. As the snow is falling, though, bridges and overpasses will become slick, so please use caution if you must travel.
Zac and Austin will have the latest update on the forecast Friday evening at 4, 5, 6 and 10. Katie will track the snow through the region Saturday morning on 7 News at 6:30 and 8.
