This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Crews are continuing to monitor road conditions; another storm with snow is predicted. 

Conditions have dramatically improved statewide with the precipitation moving out.

Slick spots are still being reported in the Oklahoma City metro as well as in southwestern and some in eastern Oklahoma.

Other areas are drying out today.

Drivers are still urged to use caution while traveling.

Crews will continue to address these issues 24/7 until conditions are favorable and are ready and prepared for any future snowfall events.

INFO: Current road conditions

During snow and/or ice conditions, motorists are asked to:
·        Be aware of "black ice," which looks wet on the roadway but is actually a thin layer of ice.
·        Stay at least 200 feet behind road-clearing equipment; crews need room to maneuver and can engage plowing or spreading materials without notice. ·        Check road conditions before getting out on the roads.
·        Allow extra space between vehicles, so there is an adequate distance for braking in wet and icy conditions.
·        Please be patient, plan trips ahead and allow extra time to reach destinations
