Difficult travel conditions from Texas to Oklahoma – Wed to Thursday night

 Wednesday, January 2, 2019 


The storm responsible for heavy snow over the interior Southwest in the beginning of 2019 will spread snow and ice, making travel dangerous from parts of Texas to portions of Oklahoma and Arkansas from Wednesday to Thursday night.




There are probabilities of road and school closures in part of the region. A thin coating of ice on roads and sidewalks will pose a major hazard for motorists and pedestrians.




Rain may end as snow, with the chance of an accumulation in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Fort Smith, Arkansas.  The storm is likely to end as accumulating snow in Abilene, Lubbock and Wichita Falls, Texas, and Oklahoma City and Lawton, Oklahoma.




The southern Plains will witness bitterly cold air much of this week. In addition to the rain, fog will be a hazard for those on the highway across the Deep South.




Freezing rain may weigh down tree limbs and cause sporadic power outages. The air may become cold enough to cause some ice over the Hill Country northwest of San Antonio, Texas.




However, with temperatures becoming moderate across the Plains late this week and this weekend, the snow and ice will melt. Drenching rain will fall closer to the Texas coast and into the lower Mississippi Valley.
