TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Freezing drizzle and icing on roads and bridges are expected throughout the day for much of eastern Oklahoma and northwestern Arkansas as both states get clipped by a winter storm moving through the Plains and Midwest.
The National Weather Service says freezing drizzle will fall Saturday as colder temperatures move through Oklahoma in the afternoon and into Arkansas by the evening.
Forecasters say trace ice accumulations are possible mainly on sidewalks, bridges and overpasses.
Oklahoma transportation officials said crews were treating slick spots Saturday afternoon in six eastern counties, including Tulsa, and advised drivers to use caution because more ice could develop as temperatures fall overnight.
The weather service says warmer temperatures are expected next week, with the next cold front arriving in the region by Thursday
