Oklahomans braced Monday night for another round of ice and snow.

Much of the state was under a winter weather advisory Monday evening as the National Weather Service said snow and freezing rain were expected before midnight, with snow falling after midnight.

Oklahoma City was expected to get between 1 and 3 inches of snow. Areas south of Oklahoma City, including Norman, were expected to get less than an inch, while areas north of the city could get 3 to 6 inches.

Those north of Enid could see up to 10 inches, forecasters said.

The snow is expected to continue until about noon Tuesday in Oklahoma City.

City officials said crews will be out all night salting streets. The cold will also will be a concern as temperatures are forecast as low as 11 degrees Tuesday night, with wind chills dipping below zero.

Wednesday's high temperature is expected to be 16 degrees, with lows in the single digits and wind chills below zero all day.

More snow and ice is expected Thursday and potentially through Saturday.
