Yet another snow storm is currently making its way into western Oklahoma that could drop anywhere between 3” – 8” of snow on an already snow covered region.

Currently much of the state is in a winter storm warning that is scheduled to expire Wednesday at 6 p.m.

Meteorologists with the National Weather Service in Norman say the latest snow storm will be similar to Saturday night’s snow event that saw a dry snow blow into western Oklahoma that created hazardous driving conditions and brought with it subzero temperatures.

No power outages caused by the storm are expected.

Meteorologists say the snow in the area could linger for much of the evening before tapering off early Wednesday morning. However, driving conditions in the area could become treacherous.

Areas that could see the heaviest snowfall accumulations include Roger Mills County, Dewey County, Custer County and the northern half of Beckham County. Meteorologists say those counties could see anywhere between 8” – 4”. Washita County, southern Beckham County and the rest of southwest Oklahoma could see anywhere between 3” – 6”.
