Snowcast Event 4 – Update 3 – Midnight, Sat, Jan 2

Most models are now similar in the how and why a vort center will head from the northern Rockies into Oklahoma during the early morning hours of January 3rd.   They are even similar on timing, strength and location.  The problem with this forecast is that the system looks like it will be weaker than previously thought… and take a track a little more east.  The result is another shift northeast with the heaviest snowfall forecast and a drop of mention of the 3 to 4 inches.  Still… expect a couple of inches to fall in the northeast part of Oklahoma – and possibly accumulating snow in the OKC metro area.  This forecast may still be overdone… but will wait a bit longer before considering removing 2 to 3 inch possibilities.
