February 20-21 OKC Area Icing

0 30

A two day icing event unfolded across the OKC Metro area from February 20-21, 2018 with sleet and freezing rain impacting the metro area.

I (Chris) was out documenting both storms for local TV and drove around with a lot of inclement weather ongoing. There were several accidents along the major thoroughfares in the city as the roads became iced over.

Totals wise, this storm wasn’t THAT high end, but there was enough ice to glaze over the roads and cause traffic problems. Basically the annoying type of winter storm that’s not good enough to be significant or notable but enough to make some pretty bad days out of traffic conditions.

Looks like that *might* be just about it for winter though. At least for me, a beach is calling!
