Oklahoma City’s largest airport says some flights are being canceled due to icy conditions but the airport remains open as freezing rain moves across much of the Southern Plains.

Will Rogers World Airport spokesman Josh Ryan says Southwest Airlines canceled five flights on Friday but that other airlines are operating a normal schedule.

He says temperatures on taxiways and runways have stayed above freezing.

Freezing rain moved into the region early Friday. Officials say slick spots are developing on roads in central Oklahoma and parts of Missouri.

Forecasters say icy weather also is expected in parts of Illinois, Texas and northern Arkansas.
