Freezing rain and freezing drizzle is moving into southern and southeastern Oklahoma right now. A thin glaze of ice is possible wherever these showers move.

Winter weather advisories are in effect for southeastern Oklahoma through midnight Tuesday. Temperatures across the state have mostly stayed below freezing creating perfect conditions for widespread freezing rain.

A glaze of ice is possible in cities like Ardmore, Pauls Valley, McAlester, Sallisaw and Antlers. Drivers along I-35 and I-44 south of Oklahoma City and into north Texas and I-40 east of Seminole into Arkansas should be aware of slippery, changing conditions.

Highest ice totals are expected in a streak from central-north Texas to central-eastern Oklahoma. Some areas could pick up as much as 0.1” inches of ice.

Oklahoma City could get a quick shower or two of freezing rain or drizzle but little to no ice accretion is expected. In Oklahoma City ice will be most likely on elevated surfaces and bridges/overpasses.
