Winter weather advisory issued until noonJanuary 11, 2020 | Headlines
NORMAN — A winter weather advisory remains in effect for the Kay County area until noon. Snow accumulations of a dusting up to two inches are forecast. Wind chills in the single digits and lower teens are expected.
The Oklahoma Department of Transportation warns of slick conditions as freezing temperatures and precipitation move through.
At this time, slick areas are reported on I-35 in Kay and Noble counties and also on highways in Kay County. Salt and sand operations are underway in central and northeast Oklahoma.
Drivers are urged to closely monitor weather reports and be alert to changing conditions. Visibility may be low in some areas. Plan additional travel time, slow down and increase following distances. Remember, bridges and overpasses will ice first.
REMEMBER during snowy and icy conditions, motorists are asked to:
• Stay at least 200 feet behind road clearing equipment; crews need room to maneuver and can engage plowing or spreading materials without notice.
• Be aware of “black ice,” which looks wet on the roadway but is a thin layer of ice.
• Allow extra space between vehicles to provide adequate distance for braking.
• Be patient, plan trips ahead and allow extra time in reaching destinations.
