CLAREMORE — Snow began falling early Wednesday in Rogers County while parts of the state are under a winter weather advisory.

All roads in Tulsa, Rogers, Creek and Okmulgee counties are becoming slick and hazardous, according to Oklahoma Highway Patrol Superintendent Tom True.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning and a winter weather advisory for parts of Oklahoma as a storm system is expected to make its way through the state.

A winter storm warning is in effect Wednesday and into Thursday for much of northwestern Oklahoma. A watch is in effect for the Panhandle and an advisory has been posted for much of northern Oklahoma.

Parts of the state could see up to 5 inches of snow, and sleet could fall, too. Travel could be dangerous. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says drivers should be especially careful during Wednesday’s morning commute.
