Ada —  

Winter weather may be headed into the area today, bringing rain, a cold north wind and perhaps some sleet and snow by nightfall, weather officials are predicting.

Adans will be well south of the brunt of the weather, officials predict, but a brush with winter is possible here.

Tomorrow's high temperature is expected to be only 45 with rain and a strong ENE wind at 14 miles per hour. Sleet could be mixed in, too, as rain will turn to ice in higher elevations before falling to the ground.

However, with ground temperatures well above freezing in the Ada area, no accumulation is expected.

Snow mixed with rain and a cold 33 degrees is expected during the night. Winds will shift completely to the north when the front passes through and a rain/snow mix is expected but — again — no real accumlation is expected, officials said.

The National Weather Service says 3 to 6 inches of snow is possible in parts of western Oklahoma as a winter storm moves through the state this week.
