TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Forecasters say freezing rain and sleet are likely in parts of eastern Oklahoma this weekend.

A winter storm watch has been issued from Saturday night through Sunday night for parts of eastern Oklahoma, including Bartlesville, Tulsa, Muskogee and McAlester.

The National Weather Service says those areas will likely see freezing rain and sleet with the heaviest icing expected in east-central Oklahoma. Forecasters say a second round of wintry precipitation is possible with the system, with about 1 inch of snow possible Sunday.

The weather service says a quarter-inch of ice is possible in some areas.
