The heaviest totals occured along the I-40 corridor in Western Oklahoma. Here in Central Oklahoma, we saw snow totals of 2-4″ on average. I covered the event with KOCO throughout the morning and evening rush hour as residents battled the road conditions. 

Roads actually got worse throughout the day it seemed, but overall I thought people were well behaved and only saw a few accidents, which is kind of rare for an Oklahoma Winter Storm.

I began covering the snow as it fell in the 11-1 AM range. It piled up quickly, with a quick couple of inches from El Reno to the West sides of the metro.

While snow continued outside, I took a brief cat nap to rest up. As the morning commute began I was back out on the roads with coverage for the station. Overall drivers actually did the right thing across OKC with the minimum amount of problems occurring. Obviously, this was was just fantastic to see!

Finally, by late morning the snow had all but ended as drier air filtered in from the north. I again took a quick cat-nap and got some work done before venturing out to take some photos!

Also took some time out to capture a brief video in the afternoon. This was the first significant snow in over 20 months in the OKC area:

Finally, this was a pretty interesting event to see unfold. Generally the event was well forecast by models and forecasters alike. Furthermore, and thankfully, the snow looks to be out of here quickly as well! Probably will have a brief respite before another winter storm approaches this next weekend![/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top”
