Near-record cold, rain and sleet are moving across Oklahoma Monday. A winter weather travel advisory is in effect through 6 p.m.
Lingering precipitation will likely be light, but any elevated surfaces with moisture may be slick.
Further east of Tulsa, general roadways could also become icy. Use lots of caution while driving this afternoon into the night.
The Oklahoma Department of Transportation issued the following statement on road conditions in Oklahoma as of 11 a.m. Monday:
Weather conditions continue to change rapidly across much of Oklahoma today and Oklahoma Department of Transportation crews continue to treat slick spots in central, southcentral and northeastern and eastern Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma City and Tulsa metro areas also are experiencing light, freezing rain that potentially will impact those traveling during the lunch hour. Crews are treating bridges and slick spots in both metro areas. I-35 travel also is impacted in multiple areas by freezing drizzle, especially in Noble, Logan and Oklahoma counties and caution is urged along the corridor.
Motorists in these areas are cautioned to plan extra travel time and to check conditions before heading to their destinations.
Meanwhile, precipitation has ended in the Oklahoma Panhandle and the surrounding northwestern counties but crews are monitoring as needed.
