Oklahoma could have a strange mix of weather in the coming week. According to a report by KWTV Channel 9 News in Oklahoma City on Feb. 9, snow, tornadoes and hail are all possible in the Sooner State. Add to that wind gusts, up to 60 mph, and Oklahoma could be in for an odd mix of weather.
Spring-like storms that will include rain, hail, high winds and possible tornadoes are possible. The threat of tornadoes are low, but not impossible as the Pacific cold front and dryline sweeps across Oklahoma.
“We haven't had much of a winter,” Kelly Winston, from Oklahoma City, said. “It has been very warm with little snow. It has been a very strange winter. I wouldn't be surprised if we had thundersnow and tornadoes. It has happened before.”
The rain is very much needed in Oklahoma. The past months and years have been quite dry. Any precipitation in Oklahoma now will help with diminish the possibility of wildfires later in the year.
Even colder weather, with possible snow, is expected mid-week. Although exact amounts are not being speculated at this point, it is possible the snow could disrupt travel in Oklahoma.
