Track Winter Storm Oaklee LIVE as warnings issued ahead of wild weather


ANOTHER huge winter storm is set to smash huge parts of the country this week.

Winter Storm Oaklee is expected to bring snow, ice, and freezing rain from parts of the West all the way to the Northeast, according to the Weather Channel.

The storm is already producing snowfall in parts of the country now before the low-pressure system will head east and combine with a blast of arctic air.

Storm warning and weather advisories have been issued already for parts of California, the Rockies, Ozarks, Mississippi, Texas, Oklahoma, New York, New England, Arkansas, and Missouri, Weather Channel reports.

The conditions are expected to make travel difficult for the weekend, and could result in mass flight cancelations at airports across the country.

    Ice will accumulate in slicken driving in areas stretching from central and northern Texas to the Ohio Valley and the mid-Atlantic states, per the Weather Channel.

    Precipitation may shift to rain before finishing in certain sections of the Ohio Valley and the Mid-Atlantic, reducing the risk of ice accumulation.

    From far north-central Texas through eastern and southeastern Oklahoma, into northern Arkansas and southern Missouri, ice accumulations may affect electricity.

    In the areas indicated in the “medium threat” on the map, from north Texas across the Ohio Valley to Pennsylvania, at least some tree damage and scattered power outages are expected.

  • How much snow should you expect?

    According to the Weather Channel, Oaklee will produce at least a foot of snow over parts of the central and southern Rockies.

    Oaklee will bring light to moderate snowfall accumulations to areas from central Oklahoma to southern and central Missouri, the northern Ohio Valley, and the southern Great Lakes.

    From northern Pennsylvania through New York state and New England, heavier totals of at least 6 inches are expected.

    It’s possible that a foot of snow may fall in some of these places, per the Weather Channel.

  • Oaklee on Friday

    On Friday, according to the Weather Channel, the Northeast will be free of ice.

    For the time being, the heaviest snowfall is forecast in far northern Pennsylvania, much of New York state, and eastern New England.

    On the southern edge of the wintry mix, sleet or freezing rain will fall.

    In the immediate New York City metro area, Friday’s precipitation is expected to be entirely rain. Parts of coastal southern New England may also get a wintry mix or showers.

  • Oaklee on Thursday, continued

    On Thursday night, New York City might witness a period of heavy snow, followed by a changeover to sleet and ice, then rain.

    Snow is expected to fall largely in the north and west of New England and upstate New York, with heavy snowfall possible at times.

    All of these places are predicted to have hazardous travel conditions, per the Weather Channel.

  • Where is Oaklee headed on Thursday?

    On Thursday, further freezing rain or sleet will move into the Ozarks and Ohio Valley from northern and central Texas.

    From the middle Plains to the Great Lakes, snow is predicted to accumulate.

    The storm of snow and ice will begin to creep into the Northeast by late Thursday or Thursday night.

    Forecasters are still unsure how the cold front will affect travel conditions, but freezing precipitation is expected.

    Through the midnight hours, icy or snowy travel will affect areas from northern and central Texas through Oklahoma, northern and central Arkansas, central and southern Missouri, and the lower Ohio valley.

  • Oaklee on Wednesday, continued

    Snow is forecast in sections of northern Arizona, Utah, and Colorado’s mountains, per the Weather Channel.

    Lower elevations from California to southern Arizona will be dampened by rain showers.

    Some of the rains may be accompanied by lightning and tiny hail or graupel, which might cause some regions to flood.

    On Wednesday, the storm will move towards the central United States.

  • Oaklee on Wednesday

    On Wednesday, Oaklee will bring snow to California’s higher altitudes as well as the southern and central Rockies.

    This is Southern California’s coldest storm of the year, with snowfall possible at elevations as low as 1,500 feet.

    This could cause considerable traffic congestion in the high country of Southern California, including the Grapevine, Interstate 15 north of the Inland Empire, and Interstate 8 through the San Diego County mountains, according to the Weather Channel.

  • Winter storm watches due to Oaklee

    From upstate New York through most of New England, including Boston, Hartford, Albany, and Portland, Maine, winter storm watches have been issued.

    Snow and/or ice will cause the worst conditions, particularly risky travel, in regions under winter storm warnings and watches.

  • Winter advisories for these areas

    Winter storm warnings and advisories range from California’s higher elevations to the southern and central Rockies, the Southern Plains, the Ozarks, and the Mississippi Valley. Dallas-Fort Worth, Oklahoma City, Little Rock, and St. Louis are among the cities that have been issued warnings.
