Episode Narrative A strong cold front brought cold arctic air to the region. A strong upper level storm system then translated across the region over the arctic air causing winter precipitation. Winter precipitation fell in the form of freezing rain, sleet, and snow beginning on November 29 and ended during the evening of November 30. Thunderstorms also occurred with the sleet and freezing rain. Strong north winds combined with the snow causing blizzard or blizzard-like conditions across parts of the area on November 30, with the worst conditions occurring in north central Oklahoma where the greatest snowfall fell. Before the precipitaion ended, most locations across approximately the western two-thirds of Oklahoma received some snow. However, many locations received other winter precipitation before changing over to snow. From northwest to southeast across the area the precipitation fell as all snow, a mix of sleet and snow, and a mix of sleet and freezing rain. Snowfall amounts ranged from less than an inch up to 12 inches. Most of the snowfall that was 4 inches or greater fell across the northern two-thirds of the area, with the greatest amounts occurring in north central Oklahoma where widespread amounts of 9 to 12 inches were reported. The highest total of 12 inches was reported in Newkirk in Kay county. Several inches of sleet fell across parts of central and southern Oklahoma. Ice glaze accumulations of up to 1/2 an inch were also reported across parts of central and southern Oklahoma. The winter precipitation caused hazardous travel across the area with numerous accidents reported.
