Does it snow in Oklahoma City in December?
Oklahoma is a mild weather state, but there are parts that get a fair amount of snow. Mostly in the northwestern part near the panhandle. Oklahoma City itself, being in more central Oklahoma gets less snowfall, but they do usually have a white Christmas. An interesting fact though is that it has only snowed four times on Christmas Day itself since record-keeping has been done. A typical December in Oklahoma City will see between 1-5 inches in the front half and 2-7 inches around Christmas time. In 2009, Oklahoma City was surprised with a Christmas Eve gift of 14 inches of snow in the biggest blizzard on record.
