Tulsa -

According to the Department of Public Safety website, roadways in Tulsa County are still considered slick and hazardous and crews are working on several accidents in the area.

Salt and sand crews are out on streets working to clear streets as well as plowing highways and interstates. Travel is discouraged unless it cannot be avoided as temperatures drop even further tonight and overnight.

Creek, Okmulgee and Rogers counties are also listed as slick and hazardous along with roads in the northeastern part of the state, including Will Rogers Turnpike and Cherokee Turnpike.

Highways in Stilwell, Tahlequah, Wagoner and Muskogee are considered icy and dangerous. I-40 is clear.

Black ice as well as slick roads are being reported in eastern Oklahoma.

Crews are focusing on city arterial streets for emergency responders and then will shift to clear residential or collector streets near hospitals, schools and areas with steep hills.

The Oklahoma City metro area is fairly clear with some slick spots.

The north-central part of the state in Kay, Osage, Noble, Pawnee and Payne Counties is seeing slick roads and high wind.

ODOT reports that most roads in northwest Oklahoma and the panhandle are clear.

Tips for Driving in Winter Weather

  • Check road conditions before getting out on the roads.
  • Stay at least 200 feet behind road-clearing equipment; crews need room to maneuver and can engage plowing or spreading materials without notice.
  • Allow extra space between vehicles, so there is adequate distance for braking in wet and icy conditions.
  • Be aware of "black ice," which looks wet on the roadway, but is actually a thin layer of ice.
  • Please be patient, plan trips ahead and allow extra time to reach destinations
