Event Summary  (Updated 12pm 02/03/2014)

An upper-level disturbance moved into the area from the southwest Sunday, resulting in wintry precipitation across eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas. The snow moved into the area quickly on Sunday morning, resulting in treacherous driving conditions and numerous accidents.

Snow fell across most of the area, except along and north of a Pawnee to Nowata line, where it remained dry. Far southeast Oklahoma saw mostly freezing rain and sleet, with a brief changeover to snow at the end of the event.

The heaviest snow fell from south of Okemah through Checotah to near Fayetteville, where 5 to 7 inches was common. One to two tenths of an inch of ice accumulation occurred in far southeast Oklahoma, and a narrow band of heavy sleet just to the north of the icing area resulted in an inch and a half of sleet accumulation at Clayton in northern Pushmataha County.
