Disruptive snow continues to fall across Texas and Oklahoma and the storm system is expected to push into the Ohio Valley later tonight.
According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol's Facebook page, there have been numerous car crashes in the Oklahoma City metro area. Motorists are being advised to slow down and increase the distance between cars. In Lubbock, Texas, more than 50 accidents have been reported since 6 a.m. local time, the Lubbock Police department reports.
"While this will not be a massive snowstorm and the heaviest to hit the Ohio Valley, the fact that it will be followed by plunging temperatures means that any wet or slushy areas could freeze and create dangerous conditions for motorists," said AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Krissy Pydynowski.
