Wild weather in Oklahoma can’t be unexpected. But what we’ve seen so far might even be unprecedented. Parts of the western part of Oklahoma are dealing with slick and hazardous road conditions, according to the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety. That’s meant freezing rain, some areas have even seen sleet. In central Oklahoma, it’s mostly been rain, with temperatures hovering right around freezing. The precipitation is expected to clear up by later this afternoon. For a look at live radar, click here.
A winter weather advisory remains in effect until 1 PM Wednesday afternoon for 33 counties, including Oklahoma, Payne, Logan. The National Weather Service says freezing rain and sleet are likely to accumulate, warning that could result in falling tree limbs and problems with power lines.
O, G and E is reporting some outages in their system, the most significant in Yukon, where more than 4,000 customers are without power. And about 750 don’t have electricity in Nichols Hills.
