Another storm system expected Tuesday night

The National Weather Service in Tulsa is warning of another high impact winter storm is headed to the area Tuesday and Wednesday.

Also, the extreme cold continues through Tuesday morning with the wind chill warning expiring at 9 a.m. Tuesday with a winter storm warning in effect from noon Tuesday to 6 a.m. Thursday.

Danger cold wind chills run through Tuesday morning with wind chills as low as 20 below zero along with moderate to heavy snow expected late Tuesday into Wednesday with total snow accumulations of four to nine inches.

The storm system is for east central, northeast and southeast Oklahoma.

The NWS warns travel could be very difficult. The very cold wind chills could cause frostbite on exposed skin in as little as 30 minutes.

Due to the unusual demand on electrical systems across the region, rolling blackouts are possible. Everybody is encouraged to find ways to conserve power over the next few days until the arctic cold leaves.

Everybody is encouraged to avoid being outside, if possible. When outside, make sure to wear appropriate clothing, a hat and gloves. While traveling, keep an extra flashlight, food and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.
