OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A winter storm watch has been issued for parts of Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle as snow and freezing rain head toward the region.

The winter storm watch is in effect through Saturday night. In Oklahoma, forecasters say 2 to 4 inches of snow is possible along the Interstate 40 corridor. Some areas could see ice accumulations of about three-tenths of an inch, would could cause power outages and tree damage.

The watch area includes McClain, Garvin, Pontotoc, Seminole, Pottawatomie and Stephens counties in the Texoma region.

KTEN meteorologist Alana Cameron said there is a "low chance" for snow flurries across Texoma on Sunday morning, but nothing that would be measurable.

In Texas, forecasters say some parts of the Panhandle could see up to 6 inches of snow through Saturday.

The National Weather Service also predicts several inches of snow in northern Arkansas along with heavy rainfall in the southern part of the state during the weekend.
