The snow that’s predicted for northern Oklahoma is part of a storm that already dumped so much snow in Colorado, it shut down Interstate 70 in the mountains. And the storm system has moved across Kansas with a fury as white outs were expected because of the strong winds that also whipped Oklahoma on Sunday.
Early Sunday morning, the system was brushing the northern part of Oklahoma with snowfall likely around Alva. But the winds made for a cold day for anyone working outside, such as those on oil and gas rigs in Oklahoma’s STACK play which reaches into the northwest.
In Colorado, a 20-car pileup on eastbound I-70 east of Frisco resulted in cars sliding off the highway and leaving some motorists with minor injuries. Parts of the interstate were closed at Vail Pass for a few hours.
