A strong cold front, followed by a storm system is expected to bring freezing rain, ice, and snow to some parts of Texas and Oklahoma.

The National Weather Service said the storm is coming to the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles late Wednesday and Thursday, followed by the storm system Friday and Saturday.

CBS 11 Meteorologist Jeff Ray says, “This is an unusually potent winter storm this early in the season for the southern Plains.”

The weather service says many uncertainties remain, including the timing, locations and types and amounts of precipitation. Current forecast models suggest the Texas Panhandle and western Oklahoma will bear the brunt of the storm, with a significant ice event possible.

The storm is expected to bring significant rains to North Texas but the area isn’t expected to suffer any snow or ice.
