Okla. — Slick and hazardous conditions are reported on highways and interstates statewide tonight as winter precipitation continues moving across Oklahoma.
Unnecessary travel is discouraged.
Crews from the Oklahoma Department of Transportation will continue clearance operations overnight and into the morning, and until all highways are clear from snow and ice.
Drivers should remain alert to plowing and salt and sand operations and stay at least 200 feet behind these trucks.
Extra caution should be used on bridges, ramps and overpasses, which become slick before roadways.
In the panhandle and areas of northwest Oklahoma, crews report some slick spots on highways, but caution that wet roads will refreeze overnight.
Central, western and eastern Oklahoma report snow packed and slushy highways, and crews expect additional precipitation overnight will continue to cause slick conditions.
If drivers must travel out of state, they are urged to check area road conditions before heading out.
Turnpikes reporting 90% clear for morning commute. Continue to drive with caution.
