Episode Narrative A strong cold front moved southeast through Oklahoma during the overnight hours of the 8th into the early hours of the 9th. Temperatures quickly fell below freezing by the morning. Precipitation developed over the northern Texas panhandle and moved east. Snow started falling over northwest Oklahoma before sunrise and spread east through the day. Most areas over the northern third of Oklahoma reported between one and three inches. However, a few spots, especially in Major and Grant counties, reported between three and five inches over the entire event. Farther south, very light freezing drizzle developed. Although not significant in total accumulation, it was enough to cause numerous accidents. Monetary damages were not available for this event.
Event Narrative Light freezing drizzle caused icy roadways, especially over bridges and overpasses. Several accidents occurred as a result of the ice, with one on Interstate 40 resulting in a fatality. At 1:37 PM, a roll-over automobile accident at mile marker 47 on I-40 killed a female driver Monetary damages were not available.
