TULSA, Oklahoma -

Residents in many parts of Oklahoma saw snow as a winter storm moved across the state Sunday.

The snow largely moved on from the Tulsa area and continued to move southeast. The Eufaula emergency management director reported drifts of two-and-a-half feet, according to WARN Team Meteorologist Mike Grogan.

Tulsa has officially measured at 2.7 inches as of 1:15 p.m., according to the National Weather Service in Tulsa. Greater amounts are being reported to the south.

Tulsa remains on Operation Slick Streets with officers responding to injury wrecks only. There have been numerous accidents throughout Tulsa County from slick, snow packed streets.

If you are in a non-injury collision, police ask that you exchange information with the other driver and get your car off the roadway.

A brisk wind is created blowing snow and cut down on visibility. Residents are urged to use caution if you must get out on the roadways.

Grogan said it's a fast-moving system that will be impacting the state through the early afternoon hours, then quickly exiting eastward by evening, bringing an end to the wintry precipitation.

The Interstate 40 corridor was essentially the bulls-eye for the heaviest snow.
