Forecasters are watching a second winter storm that will affect most of Oklahoma by Sunday evening.

Sleet, freezing rain and snow are all possible with this system.

The state is not expected to see temperatures above freezing.

A windchill could make it feel like it is in the low 20s to the mid-teens.

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 adequate distance for braking in wet and icy conditions. 
·        Please be patient, plan trips ahead and allow extra time to reach destinations
