Episode Narrative A fast-moving, but very potent winter storm moved through the central and parts of the southern Plains. The snow-storm took a track that took it from the central Rocky mountains, across the southern Texas panhandle, and through southern Oklahoma. A surface low pressure moved ahead of this storm system, with a strong cold front following behind. Bitterly cold air plunged south, dropping most locations well below freezing as the front passed. Widespread snow, some of it heavy at times, developed over the northern half of Oklahoma. The storm system strengthened as it moved east, with very strong winds developing as a result. This combined with the snow created widespread visibilities less than a half of a mile. After it ended, snowfall totals over mainly northern Oklahoma were as high as 6 to 8 inches, with lesser amounts farther south. As expected, automobile accidents were a concern with the streets becoming icy. Unfortunately, one person was killer near Guthrie as a result of one accident. Monetary damages were estimated.
Event Narrative Three inches of snow was reported in Arnett.
