SHERMAN, Texas (KXII) - Freezing rain, sleet and snow has crippled Texoma travelers on both sides of the Red River.

While North Texas continues to see freezing rain Thursday morning, Southern Oklahoma has seen sleet and snow in some places in addition to ice making roads slick and hazardous across the area.

Meteorologist Brian Briggs has the latest from the KXII Weather Center.
