Some of the areas in the north and northeast of the United States will be seeing a mega snow storm this Thanksgiving holiday, and it looks like Oklahoma might see some white flurries from the sky as well. Oklahoma meteorologists are predicting a winter storm for Thanksgiving weekend.

According to News 9 Chief Meteorologist David Payne, "latest data still brings snow to the northwest with some areas seeing 1 to 2 inches. A mix of cold rain, sleet, and snow in the metro will be possible."

Will Oklahoma see snow on Thanksgiving?

Right now, snow predictions are mostly for Friday, so if you're celebrating Thursday, your travel plans shouldn't be impacted! But if your plans linger into Friday and the weekend, you may be traveling to your festivities with more than just a dessert or side dish.

The cold front is expected to move in Friday night, and KSWO is predicting that areas in southwest Oklahoma could see a rain/snow mix, with areas of north Texas just experiencing cold rain.

How much snow could Oklahoma see?

Of course, it's too far out to get an accurate prediction of how much, if any, snow Oklahoma will see this weekend. More updates will be coming out throughout the week, so be sure to stay weather aware while you're chowing down on turkey or prepping for a Thanksgiving nap.

Oklahoma's Weirdest Thanksgiving Foods

There is no shortage of weird Thanksgiving traditions around the Sooner State. Even my own family celebrates in our own unique way. Half of us hate turkey, and the others hate ham. Mom hates to spend days cooking for a 20-minute meal, and we all get tired of the leftovers. Instead, we have either a taco fiesta or a Chef Boyardee pizza kit party. Nobody complains.

We're not the only family with a weird Thanksgiving tradition, just take a look at these shockingly common Oklahoma TG dishes. It's amazing what the cooks come up with. The list is heavy on gelatin and jello molds, if anything it'd be worth trying at least one this year. They range from mild to wild, best of luck to you.
