The Winter Storm of February 4, 2014

Synopsis

A strong upper level storm system followed quick on the heels of the February 2, 2014 winter storm, bringing snow to many parts of Oklahoma that missed out on the first round. With a deep cold airmass remaining in place, this event was mainly a snow event, but a pronounced warm nose (warm layer of air just above the surface) lead to some light freezing rain and sleet early on. Precipitation began late Monday night (2/3/14) over the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles and spread eastward as the upper low deepened, lifting north and east.

Heavy snow persisted overnight and into the day on Tuesday (2/4/14), finally ending by late afternoon. Once all was said and done, areas along and north of the Kansas-Oklahoma border recorded the greatest snow amounts, with several places over nothern and western Oklahoma reporting up to 8 inches. Further south, less snow was reported with little to no snow accumulation along or south of U.S. Interstate Highway 40 (I-40). Once the storm system vacated the area, a bitterly cold airmass swept in, bringing record cold temperatures and wind chills well below zero to the region.

Snow, Sleet and Ice Accumulation Forecast for the NWS Norman Forecast Area Issued at 2:11 PM CST on 2/03/2014
