Winter weather surprised Oklahomans in January

It is snowing! On Jan. 15, 2022, a winter storm crossed Oklahoma and left a dusting of snow. Oklahoma has subtropical climate, so snowing is always a big news here. Photo by Tatyana Nyborg.
A week before the winter storm, the temperature reached upwards of plus 68 degrees (Fahrenheit) resulting in the snow falling on green grass. Photo by Tatyana Nyborg.
