OKLAHOMA CITY -

Getting reports of slick spots on roads from the mist and drizzle that fell over night along with some fog. Temperatures are holding near 32 degrees Thursday morning. We have been near freezing most of the morning but we have finally hit the 'tipping point' for elevated surfaces to become slick.

Roadways will improve through the morning, so the immediate concern will be for secondary bridges and overpasses having some slick spots.

Ken Johnson from KOKC reported to me that Norman PD dispatch has been called out to six accidents Thursday morning due to slick spots.
