The original Winter Weather Advisory for Cleveland County, Oklahoma [Norman, Oklahoma], was a more severe forecast for today – with rain, freezing rain, ice, sleet, snow 1 to 3 inches, strong winds with severe sub-zero wind chills. Now appears to be much less precipitation, but still extremely severe cold with strong winds. It is good my apartment faces south. With wind out of the north it will be worse for north-facing apartments on the other side of the apartment building. The extreme cold of this arctic blast to remain until Tuesday when winds shift back to south for a sunny 47°F high, then a 52°F high on a mostly sunny Wednesday. Yesterday morning I went to Dollar General and Homeland grocery store to stock up. The high yesterday briefly reached 62°F while wind was still out of the south at about 20 mph.
