TULSA, Oklahoma -

Residents in parts of Oklahoma are seeing snow as a winter storm moves across the state Sunday morning. Tulsa is on Operation Slick Streets as of about 9:15 a.m. They are only responding to injury wrecks.

WARN Team Meteorologist Dick Faurot said it's a fast-moving system that will be impacting the state through the early afternoon hours, then quickly exit on eastward by evening bringing an end to the wintry precipitation.

The Interstate 40 corridor is essentially the bulls-eye for the heaviest snow, but even Tulsa could see slick roadways during the day with an inch or two of accumulation.

"Obviously, it all depends on the exact positioning of those heavier snow bands as they develop during the course of the morning and into the early afternoon," Faurot said in his weather blog.

"Brisk northerly winds will also produce some drifting of the snow making travel hazardous in many locations by late morning and through the afternoon."

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning until 9 p.m. Sunday for counties south and east of Tulsa including Okmulgee, Wagoner, Muskogee, Pittsburg and McIntosh. A mixture of sleet and up to five inches of snow are expected to make travel very hazardous in these areas.

A winter weather advisory for Tulsa, Creek, Delaware, Mayes, Payne and Rogers counties, is also in effect through 9 p.m. One to three inches of snow and sleet are expected. Should any heavy snow bands develop further north, parts of the area may be upgraded to a winter storm warning.
