Episode Narrative A significant winter storm affected much of Oklahoma beginning around sunrise on the 26th and continuing through much of the 27th. Precipitation in the form of drizzle and freezing drizzle overspread the northwest half of the state, and by mid-morning travel problems were being reported, especially along the Interstate 44 corridor. The precipitation over northwest Oklahoma began to mix with sleet and snow, although amounts were relatively light. Wintry precipitation continued through the day and into the overnight hours. Amounts still remained light, but glaze on the roads created more widespread travel problems. Sleet eventually became the dominant precipitation type. Some thunder-sleet was reported south and east of the Oklahoma City metro area. Sleet accumulations over some areas in Seminole, Pottawatomie, and Hughes counties were three to four inches. Most locations over central and southern Oklahoma ranged from one to two inches. This was on top of at least a quarter inch of ice that fell on the 26th. Widespread automobile accidents were reported. A few power outages were also reported, probably due to more sleet than ice accumulation. Tree and power line damages were minimal, with most damage occurring during traffic accidents. Monetary damages were estimated.
Event Narrative Several accidents occurred on Highways 76 and 39, and Interstate 35. Some of them were rollover accidents. No injuries were reported. Monetary damages were not given.
