1- At 0245 it still raining and the NWS has a severe t-storm warning for the eastern one third and the SE half of the county. This will move out over the next few hours and then strong gusty northwesterly winds will be the issue for the rest of the day. There is a BLIZZARD WARNING in effect for parts of the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles and western Kansas. If you are heading that way, use EXTREME CAUTION. Also, Harper, Woodward, and Ellis counties could receive upwards of 2 to 4 inches of snow. Welcome to spring in Oklahoma!
