Oklahoma Road Crews Preparing For Arctic Blast

Texoma is bracing for colder temperatures next week, and so are Oklahoma City crews. Officials said road crews are preparing for possible snow and ice in the Oklahoma metro area. Crews are pre-treating bridges and overpasses with a salt brine solution.

The National Weather Service is predicting a chance of snow and rain on Saturday and Sunday. Forecasters are also talking about another storm front moving into Oklahoma Monday night. That will likely bring snow across the northern part of the state.

Blowing or drifting snow is possible north of the Interstate 40 corridor. Forecasters say the coldest temperatures of the season so far are predicted for next week, with wind chills that could drop below
zero.
