Record cold, snow & ice is occurring over the Plains & Northern to eastern Rockies.

This is the earliest Ice Storm Warning on record to be issued in Oklahoma. Ice accretion up to 0.5" may occur on fully-foliated trees, resulting in widespread, significant tree damage & numerous power outages. Parts of will drop into the single digits to 0 early this week.

A few flakes & sleet may mix along & west of a Wheatfield to Earl Park line.
Showers/drizzle/fog exit tomorrow, followed by cloudy skies that may have a few breaks in places late in the day. Highs of 46-52 are likely with a light west-northwest wind.

Near to record warmth may occur in multiple occasions in the first half of November with a couple rounds of storms (severe weather risk too).
One brief cool snap may occur around November 11, but we may have to wait until after November 20 for a good hard freeze.
Wind will blow many leaves down, but this weather support a long-lasting fall color season that is cut short in some years by hard freezes.
