Areas of freezing drizzle will continue through Sunday morning primarily southeast of Interstate 44. This will result in slick spots on area roadways. A band of very light snow will also pass across northeast Oklahoma this morning but no accumulation is expected. Both the freezing drizzle and light snow will diminish by afternoon with temperatures slowly warming above freezing for all locations. Temperatures will warm through mid week with much above normal temperatures expected Wednesday into Thursday. These warm temperatures along with breezy southerly winds may raise fire weather concerns. A strong cold front arrives late Thursday with a chance for wintry weather across northeast Oklahoma Thursday night into early Friday. There remains considerable uncertainty with the late week forecast, so changes should be expected as the forecast is refined.
