Hazardous Weather Outlook: ICY ROADS

Thursday, February 3rd

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for southeast Oklahoma, for portions of south central and southwest Arkansas, and for portions of northeast Texas.

DAY ONE – This Afternoon and Tonight

Much colder and now drier air continue to pour into the region with a wintry mix now affecting much of the area in the Winter Storm Warning, which continues until 6PM. Expect driving conditions to quickly deteriorate once this transition occurs, with freezing rain accumulations near a quarter inch, along with sleet and snow accumulations possible.

DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN – Friday through Wednesday

Given the expected icy surfaces in the warning area, many roads will freeze hard overnight and may thaw a bit Friday afternoon upper 30s, but then refreeze leftovers overnight with lower 20s. So there may even be some residual threat of lingering ice early on Saturday, but no other hazardous weather is expected at this time.


Activation of emergency management personnel, amateur radio operators and storm spotters may be needed through this afternoon.
