Winter storm enters Oklahoma, roads slick

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A winter storm has begun moving into Oklahoma - leaving roads in parts of the state slick and hazardous.

Several accidents were reported Thursday morning - but Oklahoma Highway Patrol Capt. Chris West says none appeared serious. The patrol reports slick and hazardous driving conditions in the southwestern corner of the state while roads and bridges are slick in spots in the remainder of the western half of the state.

Freezing rain, sleet and snow were falling in the western half of the state and is to move eastward across the state through the day. The National Weather Service says 2 to 4 inches of snow is possible - and strong winds blowing the snow were creating near white-out conditions in western Oklahoma.

Will Rogers World Airport shut down one runway and reported on its Web site that flights to Chicago, Denver and Newark, N.J., were canceled as are flights later today from Dallas and San Francisco have been canceled. Tulsa International Airport reported a a flight to and from Dallas has been canceled.
