A blast of Arctic cold is expected to arrive Saturday night. The freezing temperatures are expected to last until Sunday night. According to a February 28 report by KWTV Channel 9 News in Oklahoma City, the remnants of a Pacific storm will mix with an Arctic and sub-tropical air mass to produce sub-zero wind chills in Oklahoma.

Along with the Arctic cold, freezing rain, sleet and snow can also be expected. Sleet is expected in the northwestern part of the Sooner state. Freezing rain is expected from the southwest corner to the northeastern corner, sweeping across central Oklahoma. The far southeast corner of Oklahoma can expect thunder and rain. There should also be a thin line of snow between the freezing rain and the thunder and rain.

Although not a lot of ice and sleet is expected to accumulate on the roads and bridges, slick and hazardous traveling conditions should be prepared for. It doesn't take much ice and sleet to make traveling a dangerous endeavor.

It is believed that ice accumulations should be less than a quarter of an inch. However, that number can can change. In fact, local meteorologists are expecting that number to be increased as the Arctic blast moves across Oklahoma.
