Oklahoma is entering day three of the state's winter storm and the story continues to be about downed powerlines, trees and large power outage numbers.

As of 6 a.m. Wednesday, more than 252,000 OG&E Customers are without power. An additional 69,00 electric cooperative members are without power. More than 25,000 PSO customers are without power as well.

More freezing rain hit the state overnight into Wednesday morning.

The worst conditions appear to be in west Oklahoma through the morning.

Oklahoma City could start with some freezing rain but will transition quickly to all liquid.

Power outages and some road issues will continue. A few storms are possible as well.

Rain will end Thursday and could be mixed with snow early. Winds will become very gusty by early Thursday, so more power outages and tree and property damage are expected.

Pattern dries out and warms into next week.
