OKLAHOMA CITY -- Snow began falling shortly before midnight as a storm that is expected to dump up to 18 inches of snow in parts of Oklahoma moved into the state.

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation reports roads in most of the state are slick and hazardous and that blowing snow is limiting visibility. Several minor accidents were reported, but no serious injuries.

Oklahoma Gas and Electric reported about 2,500 customers without power with the bulk, about 1,600, in the Mannsville area east of Ardmore in southern Oklahoma. Public Service Company of Oklahoma reported nearly 150 outages in Tulsa County.

A blizzard warning is in effect from central through northeastern Oklahoma, with the National Weather Service forecasting up to 18 inches of snow in the northeastern corner of the state and wind gusts of 35 to 40 mph.
