OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Numerous schools have called off classes as bitterly cold temperatures with wind chill indexes below zero are reported across Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma City and Tulsa school districts – the state’s two largest – are among those cancelling classes for Monday.

The National Weather Service reported temperatures of 5 degrees below zero in Bartlesville, 1 below in Ponca City and zero in both Stillwater and Gage. Wind chill indexes of 13 below in Gage, 12 below in Tulsa and 10 below in Enid.

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation said drifting snow has kept highways in north-central and northeastern Oklahoma slick in spots and that crews continued plowing and treating the roadways.
