Texoma motorists faced treacherous driving conditions Tuesday night as freezing rain and drizzle adhered to bridges and overpasses in the region.

Multiple accidents were reported in the KTEN viewing area. 

The National Weather Service extended a Winter Weather Advisory for the Texas portion of Texoma through 2 a.m. Wednesday. 

The weather service urges motorists to be alert for hazardous driving conditions as ice accumulates on streets and highways. Forecasters said any ice that accumulates can be expected to remain on road surfaces through Wednesday morning.

Multiple school districts across Texoma were either closed or planned to open late on Wednesday because of the icy roads.

The overnight low is expected to be in the mid-20s.
