Driving conditions have deteriorated today as more snow is falling in central and south-central Oklahoma and along a line from Love County northeast to Cherokee County.

Travel on Interstate 35 through Murray County is slow, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reports. The road is open, but traffic is crawling in the Arbuckle Mountains, the patrol reports.

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation reports slick and hazardous conditions, and says much of the progress made in clearing roads after Tuesday's blizzard has been lost.

U.S. 412A, seven miles east of Locust Grove, was closed as of noon, ODOT reported.

Frigid temperatures overnight caused a refreeze of any melted snow. Highways continue to remain slick and snow-packed in northeastern Oklahoma, and roads are snow-packed but passable from central Oklahoma east to the Arkansas state line, ODOT reports.

In Oklahoma County, sheriff's deputies have been responding to calls in sport utility vehicles, Sheriff John Whetsel said.

Since Wednesday the office has responded to 131 motorist assist calls, two traffic hazards, six abandoned vehicles and 16 crashes.

No traffic fatalities have been reported in the Oklahoma City area by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol or Oklahoma City police since the Tuesday blizzard.
