Freezing rain started falling Wednesday afternoon across central Oklahoma causing numerous wrecks, especially across the Oklahoma City metro area.
This is the precursor to precipitation from a winter storm that will move in early Thursday, bringing with it freezing drizzle, rain, sleet and snow. A winter storm warning was issued earlier in the day for the entire metro area and points south.
A mix of sleet and freezing rain is expected to increase Wednesday night across the state, and then more precipitation is expected Thursday.
Some icing will be possible by Thursday morning. Up to .25" of ice will be possible and will create slippery travel and some disruptions.
