Winter for Some, Spring for Others
Strong late winter storm system is now moving through Oklahoma with the upper level energy spinning through northern New Mexico. A potent cold front is stretched from southwest Michigan, south of Chicago and Kansas City and southward east of Oklahoma City and into northern Texas. Temperatures on Friday have been 20 to 40 degrees colder than 24 hours previous for much of the Plains behind this front and there has been SNOW, too.
This system is going to intensify and slowly progress eastward over the next day and that is going to set up the strong likelihood of a major late winter storm for much of eastern Oklahoma into the Ozarks of Missouri.
Here are some updated forecast snowfall numbers for the the area I believe will be hardest hit:
Oklahoma City 7" to 10"
Tulsa 8" to 11"
Springfield, MO 3" to 7"
Witchita 3" to 7"
The entire storm system will slowly progress eastward and a few flakes of snow mix with rain as far south as a Dallas-Monroe-Tupelo-Huntsville line Sunday through Monday morning.
