ADA — After receiving a rough bout of winter weather Friday evening and early Saturday morning, Pontotoc County may be receiving yet another round of wintry precipitation Sunday and Monday.

According to the National Weather Service, a light wintry mix is still in the forecast for both Sunday and Monday, with highs only reaching into the lower 30s and 40s and lows lingering in the teens and 20s.

On Friday, skies were partly to mostly cloudy with temperatures ranging from 35 in McAlester to 36 degrees in Sulphur, the weather service said. Official temperatures recorded for Ada Friday was a high of 33 and low of 16. Saturday at 7 a.m. the temperature was 16 with 0.21 inches of precipitation recorded over the previous 24 hours.

Total rainfall to date for 2006 is 1.39 inches compared to last year’s 6.13 inches.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol stayed busy with calls of accidents and stranded motorists as vehicles slipped and slid along icy roadways.

“We know there have been numerous calls from all over the state, too numerous to keep track,” said OHP Lt. Stewart Meyer. “Anytime you have conditions like this, you have to take it upon yourself to slow considerably to the point where you have control of your car.”

Pontotoc County will experience low precipitation chances throughout the week, with partly cloudy skies on Tuesday and Wednesday, with highs rebounding into the lower 50s on Tuesday. Highs on Wednesday will be in the upper 40s. Lows Tuesday night should hit the upper 30s and upper 40s on Wednesday night, the weather service said, before bouncing back to above average temperatures and sunny skies by next weekend.
