It may not be close to normal but there is no denying that OKC was overdue for a "real snowstorm".

Just drove back to Tejas today from southern Oklahoma and everything was pretty much melted (or in the process of melting.) All the snow and ice should be gone by New Year's Eve unless the freezing temps can stay throughout the daytime = generally an impossibility in Oklahoma as it is in Texas.

That's good to hear. How fast were you able to drive?

Interstates are dry to the best of my knowledge. Looks like a couple more inches tomorrow but anything that sticks should be easy to clear. We do look to be staying below freezing for a couple days after that but I wouldn't worry to be honest.

About 73-76 mph the whole way.

If you're driving during the day I don't think you have anything to worry about. At night, you will have the possibility of black ice.

We are supposed to be getting a couple more inches today/tonight, maybe some mix tomorrow and more snow on Thursday.. I still don't think you will have much problem though since the road crews should be a bit more on the ball now.

Thanks for the input everyone. I do drive a Honda Accord though. It is a V6--no 4WD. Any issues? Do I need snow tires, chains or any type of equipment just in case?

Just watched the weather on TV - the back end of this latest snow front is already in southwest OK.........Everything should be okay.
