And some people living on the north side of Lake Overholser in western OKC may have seen quite a bit of snow.
Actually… I was sitting at Memorial and MacArthur in far northwest OKC when we had a period of light to moderate snow. I had not been paying attention to the weather and just assumed that we were getting enough lifting from some synoptic mechanism to cause the snow. When I got home and was able to look at radar… I realized that we were dealing with a VERY localized event. One that I have seen snow from a few times in the past… but never seen on radar before.
I thought I had the scoop… but the National Weather Service in Norman was quick to see it unfolding and put up a graphic explaining the event on their webpage.
They focused on the power plant in western OKC… but we were seeing snow from a different source. I believe that the snow I saw was coming from a water treatment plant located on the north side of Lake Hefner.
There were probably several other places in central Oklahoma that were seeing snow from “non-weather” sources… just another fun item associated with this winter event.
