                    A strong upper level storm produced heavy snow across northeast and east central Oklahoma from
                    the late evening of February 14th through the early evening of February 15th. Snowfall amounts
                    ranged from 6 to 10 inches along and north of Interstate 40, with a considerable decrease in
                    snow amounts to the south of Interstate 40. The majority of the snow fell between 0100 CST and
                    1200 CST on the 15th. The snow caused travel problems and resulted in numerous school closings
                    throughout the affected area.

  Zones 26>32-

                    A strong upper level storm produced freezing rain across much of northeast and east central
                    Oklahoma on February 24th. Since temperatures remained near or just slightly below freezing,
                    roadways remained mostly wet, with only a few icy patches on bridges and overpasses. However,
                    numerous power outages occurred due to the weight of the ice on power lines. In addition,
                    numerous trees and tree limbs were downed in Haskell County, where more than 1 inch of
                    precipitation fell, mostly in the form of freezing rain.
