The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is warning motorists that a winter storm moving into the Southern Plains is creating slick spots on roads and bridges.
Freezing rain was reported before sun-up on Friday in a band from southwestern Oklahoma into southern parts of Kansas and Missouri. Forecasters warn that the areas could see significant accumulations of ice before the storm moves out during the holiday weekend.
Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin has already declared a state of emergency that covers each of the state’s 77 counties. The declaration activates the state’s emergency response plan. She also relaxed size and weight restrictions for state roadways to accommodate relief efforts.
