"We still have quite a bit of snow across central and northern Oklahoma," meteorologist Doug Speheger said.
The Oklahoma City metro area should get somewhere between 1 and 3 inches of snowfall, while larger amounts of 3 to 4 inches are possible in some parts of northeast Oklahoma, Speheger said.
At 1 p.m., some areas in southeast Oklahoma were still a few degrees above freezing, and rain was falling, which Speheger said makes a big difference in road conditions.
But as the storm continues to move through and temperatures drop this afternoon, far southeast Oklahoma residents will see the rain change to sleet and snow, the weather service reported.
Although heavy freezing rain has ended, existing ice combined with blustery winds could create dangerous conditions and the possibility of more power outages, the weather service warned.
Statewide, travel today is discouraged, and a majority of state highways are slick and hazardous, according to the Oklahoma Department of Transportation.
By tonight, the precipitation will end and winds will decrease, the weather service said. But temperatures will remain cold through Sunday, and residents are urged to keep blankets and flashlights handy in case of power loss.
