Snow-- so what's REALLY gonna happen?

(ABOVE: "So, is it really gonna snow on Monday?!" )

This makes me laugh when I hear this. Our weather staff is often asked what we "really think" will happen with the weather just after finishing a newscast.

So, I'm including an email. This is what I sent to KJRH employees after the 9am Sunday "2NEWS Weekend Mornings" newscast. Hopefully this closely resembles what actually came out of my mouth on TV!

email: "The first snow of the season is on the way. For today, light snow and flurries are possible in Tulsa and our viewing area. No accumulation expected. Most folks won’t receive any measurable snow today. Monday is our snow day. 1-3" totals are likely in our viewing area including Tulsa. As I type this Tulsa is not under any weather advisories, but am guessing that a "Winter Weather Advisory" will be issued for Monday.

Light snow is possible as early as sunrise on Monday, but most of the snow will fall during the afternoon and evening. Snow gradually ending toward and after midnight. Enjoy!

What could be bigger story is the cold. We will likely stay below freezing for over 100 straight hours!! Highs temperautures in the 20s and low 30s are expected thru Thursday.

Working for you,


note: you can always check for the latest forecast. :)
