Change in the weather

Forecasters anticipate rain  and potential for ice

Sunny skies and record-warm temperatures Wednesday in the Lawton area are expected to give way to much colder conditions in the coming days, and flooding is feared in parts of Oklahoma as a storm system brings the risk of lots of rain and even ice  to the region.

The National Weather Service reported Wednesday that a slow-moving storm system will move into Oklahoma and Arkansas Friday morning. More than a quarter of an inch of ice could accumulate in parts of western and northern Oklahoma through Saturday.

Forecasters warned there is also a chance of ice accumulations in central and southern Oklahoma. Widespread rainfall of up to 5 inches is possible in southern, central and eastern Oklahoma Sunday night and Monday. Heavy rainfall could cause streams to overflow and isolated flash flooding in some areas.
