A Winter Storm Watch remains in effect from Thursday evening through Saturday morning.
* Timing: rain is expected to begin changing over to freezing rain and sleet late Thursday evening in northwest Oklahoma with the transition to winter precipitation spreading southeast through the watch area on Friday. The winter precipitation will persist over portions of the area through Saturday morning.
* Main impact: ice accumulations near one-quarter inch are possible in the watch area. Some higher amounts approaching one- half inch currently appear possible over parts of west- central Oklahoma.
* Other impacts: ice accumulations combined with gusty north winds will increase the chances for damage to trees and power lines...which could result in power interruptions. Bridges and overpasses may become slick and hazardous.
