 The National Weather Service in Norman has issued a winter
weather advisory for freezing drizzle and freezing fog…which is
in effect until 9 am CST Saturday for Kingfisher, Logan, Canadian,

Oklahoma,Lincoln,Cleveland, Pottawatomie counties.

* Timing: This evening through late Saturday morning.

* Main Impact: Areas of freezing drizzle and freezing fog may
  result in a light glaze of ice developing on elevated roads and
  surfaces.

* Other Impacts: A light coating of ice may result in slick spots
  on roads…especially bridges and overpasses. Fog will also
  result in hazardous travel across the region due to low
  visibility. Some visibilities could drop below one half mile at
  times.

Precautionary/preparedness actions…

Be careful if you have to travel. Even small amounts of ice can
make roads and sidewalks slick and dangerous.
