WE)--Northern Oklahoma is expected to experience historically cold weather coming up this weekend and into next week. Temperatures have already not made it above freezing for days and colder weather is expected for another week. Beginning Saturday night and stretching in to Tuesday, daytime temperatures are forecast to be in the single digits, with overnight lows below 0. Wind chills below -5 are likely beginning Saturday night, dropping further to below -20 at times Monday and Tuesday. The forecast also calls for a significant snowstorm. The heaviest snowfall will probably occur Sunday into early Monday. Snowfall totals of 5 to 10 inches will be the rule, with higher amounts in some areas. It's expected to be a “dry” snow, so drifting snow will be likely. Near-blizzard conditions may occur in unprotected areas Sunday night and Monday. Make preparations now, because travel is expected to become very difficult to impossible by late Sunday.

VP)--The Oklahoma State Department of Health COVID-19 vaccine scheduler portal is available for pre-registration. The department launched the COVID-19 vaccine scheduler portal to notify Oklahomans when they’re eligible to receive the vaccine and provide more information on how to schedule an appointment. Oklahomans can visit this portal at vaccinate.oklahoma.gov, but appointment scheduling will not be available until Thursday. Health officials said currently only Oklahomans who are 65 and older, health care workers and/or first responders will be able to schedule appointments. As the state advances in its phased approach to vaccine distribution, the system will notify and allow individuals in additional priority groups and phases the opportunity to schedule their appointment.
