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.

  on roads…especially bridges and overpasses. Fog will also
  result in hazardous travel across the region due to low
