  • Travel is discouraged in southern portions of the state due to dangerous conditions.
     
    Highways in southern Oklahoma, including I-35 between the Oklahoma City area and the Texas stateline, continue to be slick and hazardous.
     
    In western and southwestern Oklahoma, highways are slick in some spots. Crews continue to report slick and hazardous conditions on I-40 between the Texas stateline and the Oklahoma City area.
     
    In eastern Oklahoma, crews have been working through the night to treat roads and are reporting icy conditions on I-40 from Henryetta to approximately eight miles west of SH-150 and packed snow and ice on I-40 between Checotah and Gore. There are isolated slick spots on I-40 east of Gore to the Arkansas stateline.
     
    US-69 is slick and hazardous between Muskogee and Pittsburg County south of Eufaula. Highways south of Okmulgee and Muskogee and west of Keota are snow-packed, with the exception of US-75 south of Okmulgee, which has isolated slick spots.
     
    Highways in most of southeastern Oklahoma remain slick and hazardous road conditions, especially roads in the Ouachita Mountains, which are being affected by heavy winds and blowing snow. Crews anticipate they will continue treating and plowing roads through the afternoon.
     
    Highways in the Oklahoma City and Tulsa areas are mainly clear and crews continue to monitor conditions and are prepared to treat isolated areas as needed. Drivers should still be cautious of slick spots and black ice. Commuters should plan extra travel time this morning and make sure cars are clear of ice before driving.
     
    Drivers are asked to be cautious and highway travel is strongly discouraged. Travelers are urged to check with other states, especially Texas and Arkansas, before driving out-of-state.
