Garvin-Murray-Pontotoc-Coal-Johnston-Atoka and Bryan counties.

Light freezing rain, drizzle and fog expected across
portions of Oklahoma late tonight through early Thursday
morning.

Temperatures will fall just below freezing after midnight tonight
across most of Oklahoma. Colder temperatures, in the 20s, will
develop along and north of Interstate 40. Freezing drizzle and
light freezing rain will be possible from around midnight to just
after sunrise Thursday morning mainly along and east of
Interstate 35, and north of a line from around Ardmore to Atoka.
In addition, areas of freezing fog will develop near the same
locations. Some of this fog could become dense near sunrise
thursday morning. Light ice accumulations from the
drizzle, rain and fog will be possible on elevated surfaces
such as bridges and overpasses. This, combined with visibilities
of less than one mile at times, may result in hazardous driving
conditions across central and eastern Oklahoma. Motorists
traveling across the region late tonight through early Thursday
morning should use extreme caution.
