There is a winter storm warning for several counties including Chautauqua and Montgomery counties in southeast Kansas and Craig, Delaware, Nowata, Osage, Ottawa, Pawnee and Washington counties in Oklahoma.

The rest of northeast Oklahoma is under a winter weather advisory.

City crews are responsible for clearing snow and ice from certain areas of Tulsa's highways and all main streets. ODOT will handle state and federal highways in northeast Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says drivers need to anticipate poor road conditions as the day progresses and to allow extra time for the possibility of weather related traffic conditions and double travel distances between vehicles in the event of slick roadways.

News On 6's WARN team says rain mixed with sleet will fall across the region Wednesday morning. Areas north and west of Tulsa and along the state line with Kansas could see snow accumulations of several inches by Wednesday evening.
