narrow band of moderate snow ongoing across SW/central OK Marks
the back edge of the accumulating snowfall...and per reports a
round of an additional 1-2 inches is possible as it progresses
eastward. The northern periphery of the band will continue to be
eroded by the advancing dry low levels...however updated forecast
will slightly increase evening snow accumulations from Interstate
40 southward into southeast OK. Latest data continue to support a quick
transition toward much lighter precipitation amounts across southeast OK after
midnight.
