Central Oklahoma got its first real taste of winter precipitation Tuesday so far this season and it was a mix of just about everything. Snow, ice, sleet. The late Gary Shore, once a popular meteorologist in Tulsa, coined the phrase "snizzle" back in the 1980s, and we may have had some of that, too. 

The National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center in Norman dished on the icy stuff in a tweet Tuesday night that pretty well covers what we've seen in the last 24 hours. 


Tuesday's storms caused some problems for drivers in Oklahoma City throughout the day. Wet weather is expected through the end of the work week.
