Road conditions are slick across northern Oklahoma because of the drizzle.

Thousands of Oklahoma residents will hit the road for Thanksgiving Day holiday.

If you're heading to Oklahoma City and plan on taking I-44, there are no major problems to report. If you're heading down to Texas and plan on hopping onto I-35 in Oklahoma City, no major reports of bad roads, just some minor construction delays.

If you're going to Arkansas for the holiday, no major reports of road closures or problems.

The only slick spots according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol are in the Panhandle. There are reports of minor snowfall in Cimarron and Texas County. The OHP is urging drivers to slow down and use caution.

Overall, conditions aren't too bad, but troopers just wants people to slow down a little on the slick roads and use caution on bridges and overpasses.
