OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A heavy snow warning for western and southwestern Oklahoma is being canceled by the National Weather Service.

Heavy snow began falling Tuesday morning, but Oklahoma Highway Patrol dispatcher Laurie Malakowsky in Clinton says most was melting as it hit the ground. She says a few cars have skidded off roadways in Roger Mills and Beckham counties, but no serious injuries were reported.

National Weather Service meteorologist Dan Miller says the heaviest snowfall is in the Panhandle of north Texas where 6 to 7 inches fell, and in eastern New Mexico where 1 to 2 feet accumulated.
