OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma Department of Transportation says roads in some areas of the state remain slick and hazardous following a winter storm that hit the state and are warning of roadways refreezing.

The National Weather Service has forecast Monday night lows across the state to be mostly from the single digits to the teens.

O-DOT reports slick and hazardous roads in Cherokee and Adair counties in northeastern Oklahoma and in Le Flore, Pittsburg and Bryan counties in southeastern Oklahoma — although sunshine on Monday did help clear the wintry precipitation from some of the major roadways in the state.

O-DOT says the possibility of refreezing is highest on bridges and overpasses during the night Monday and into Tuesday morning.
