2-1-1 HEARTLINE DISASTER RESOURCES

ICE STORM JAN 2017

DISASTER-3 OEM AND VOAD UPDATES FOR AN ACTIVE EVENT

SERVICE DESCRIPTION:TODAY:
Heaviest precipitation will occur overnight - Friday evening to Saturday morning. Evening rush hour may be a challenge as road and bridge temperatures will reach freezing at about 6:00 pm and freezing drizzle moves into the area.

The Freezing Rain Advisory is still in effect until 6:00 pm Saturday but it may be cancelled sooner if temperatures rise during the day Saturday.

Round 1 - Friday: Relatively light freezing rain possible this afternoon then heavier tonight beginning about 7:00 pm and into early Saturday.

Round - 2 Saturday: Freezing rain continues after midnight into Saturday morning until about 9 to 10:00 am. The freezing rain should change over to rain later in the day when the temperatures rise above freezing and the freeze line lifts northward.

Round 3 - Sunday: The freeze line will be in NW and northern Oklahoma. OKC Metro will see rain. Far SW Oklahoma will have a Marginal Risk of severe thunderstorms.

Ice Accumulations: This is unchanged from this morning. NWS is still forecasting from 0.10 to 0.25 inches of ice accumulation. However, WeatherSentry (third party subscription weather service) has the total accumulation by Saturday morning at about half an inch by 8:00 or 9:00 am. If this holds true then we would expect to see more powerline and tree damage.

Impacts: This has changed from this morning. The southern tier of OKC should expect some ice accumulation on powerlines and tress. The northern tier of OKC especially NW OKC will experience some power outages & tree damage. Expect icy roads, bridges, and elevated roadways overnight from about 7:00 pm to about 9 am Saturday.

No significant incidents have occurred.
