As round two of winter weather moved out of the area Thursday, forecasters were already talking about another system coming early next week.
The National Weather Service forecast for the Edmond area includes a chance of light snow on Friday with little or no accumulation expected. A stronger system is expected to impact the region early next week with wintry weather possible Monday night and Tuesday.
Temperatures will remain below freezing until Saturday, when mostly sunny skies and a high of 41 are expected. Highs Monday will be near 34 and Tuesday near 30.
At 10:53 a.m. Thursday, the temperature was 12 degrees at the Guthrie-Edmond Regional Airport. The low Thursday night was expected to be near 8.
In Edmond, officers worked a handful of crashes in which motorists were driving too fast for the road conditions, Police Officer James Hamm said. In one of the wrecks, a citizen rear-ended an officer waiting for the light, Hamm said. Hamm also wrote several speeding tickets.
“You’ve got to reduce your speed no matter how experienced you think you are,” Hamm said, noting that speed limits are set for ideal conditions.
Hamm urged residents to be cautious on city streets until they are snow-free. Refreezing is likely to occur overnight causing icy patches, Hamm said.
