This, of course, isn’t guaranteed but either way dangerous conditions will exist to our south and southwest.

2-KEY NOTE FOR EVERYONE WANTING TO TRAVEL; be prepared to stay overnight at or near your destination if snowfall becomes heavy enough to close roads. This could happen anywhere in the WATCH AREA so keep this in mind. No one knows exactly where the heavier showbands will actually occur, so use EXTREME CAUTION while driving later today, tonight, and Wednesday. ROAD CONDITIONS for us and all states around Oklahoma can be found on our front page at https://gcem.org website. Keep up with the latest information from the NWS/NORMAN.
