Just to give you an idea of how radar with winter overlays work. Most use the HRRR model guidance for temperate and based off those calculations it changes the radar precip mode from rain to winter. For example this shows snow to the west of OKC, where in fact snow is being reported as far east as Midwest City. And for something local reports of sleet and snow east of Joplin, whereas the radar just shows rain.
