Edit: From Oklahoma Dept. of Emergency Management:- ''Winter Weather Event December 9 - Present, 2007 On Saturday December 8, an Arctic airmass moved into Oklahoma from Kansas. As the cold air settled in across Oklahoma, temperatures dropped below freezing. A storm system moved across Kansas/Nebraska early Sunday morning and produced widespread freezing rain in Oklahoma, especially along the I-44 Corridor. Many areas received 1/4 inches of ice with some areas up to 1/2 inches by Sunday evening. Additional freezing rain is expected through Monday night.''
