26 Mar 09 - NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE - A POWERFUL LATE-SEASON WINTER STORM WILL IMPACT MUCH OF OKLAHOMA AND NORTHERN TEXAS FROM LATE THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH EARLY SATURDAY AFTERNOON.

HEAVY SNOW IS EXPECTED OVER PARTS OF NORTHERN AND WESTERN OKLAHOMA... AND STRONG WINDS WILL CREATE NEAR-BLIZZARD CONDITIONS IN SOME AREAS.

STORM-TOTAL SNOWFALL COULD REACH UNPRECEDENTED LEVELS FOR SO LATE IN THE SEASON... AND BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW COULD VIRTUALLY SHUT DOWN MANY PARTS OF NORTHWESTERN OKLAHOMA BY SATURDAY.

INCLUDING THE CITIES OF...BUFFALO...ALVA... CHEROKEE... MEDFORD... PONCA CITY...ARNETT... WOODWARD... FAIRVIEW... ENID... PERRY... CHEYENNE...TALOGA... WEATHERFORD... CLINTON... WATONGA... KINGFISHER...ELK CITY...SAYRE

THIS WINTER STORM HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BECOME A PARTICULARLY SIGNIFICANT AND POSSIBLY CRIPPLING WEATHER EVENT IN NORTHWESTERN OKLAHOMA... WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF VERY HEAVY SNOW ACCUMULATIONS OF A FOOT OR MORE... AND STRONG WINDS LEADING TO MAJOR BLOWING AND DRIFTING ALONG WITH NEAR-WHITEOUT CONDITIONS AT TIMES.

SNOW IS FORECAST TO BEGIN FALLING OVER FAR NORTHWEST OKLAHOMA LATE THURSDAY NIGHT. SNOW WILL SPREAD SOUTHEAST AND BECOME HEAVY AT TIMES DURING THE DAY ON FRIDAY. SOME ADDITIONAL LIGHT SNOW IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE FRIDAY NIGHT. TOTAL SNOW ACCUMULATIONS GREATER THAN 4 INCHES ARE LIKELY WITHIN THE WATCH AREA... WITH SIGNIFICANTLY GREATER AMOUNTS POSSIBLE ESPECIALLY IN FAR
NORTHWESTERN OKLAHOMA.

Thanks to Laura Davis for this info
          "It is pretty unusual for us to get a blizzard at all, let alone this late in
           March," says Laura. "I can't help but snicker about it, though, because
           it just makes me think you've got more ammunition in the battle against
           AGW propaganda."
