Winter Storm Warning issued for parts of Texoma

A freezing rain/drizzle began falling Wednesday morning in some parts of Texoma, and News 12 Weather Authority meteorologists say today is just the beginning when it comes to possible winter precipitation over the next 48 hours.

Here's the latest from News 12 meteorologist Tom Miller.

Texoma Forecast - Wednesday January 2, 2019

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for most of Texoma from Wednesday 3am until Friday 6am.

Cold Arctic air has moved across Texoma the last 24 hours. An upper level low pressure system over Arizona is making its way eastward and looks to pass just south of the Red River early Friday morning. This is expected to bring some wintry precipitation in two rounds. The first is today with rain and possible freezing rain this morning. The second round will begin late Wednesday night into Thursday night. This is where we may see heavier amounts of mix precipitation. We will need to watch the temperature and precipitation as they drive the next few days. We could see a mix of rain/light freezing rain/sleet/ and light snow Thursday. Friday into our weekend we will see a quick warm-up with highs back into the 60’s.
