The National Weather Service has canceled the Winter Storm Warning for all counties in the KTEN viewing area.

A Winter Storm Advisory remains in effect for Carter, Murray, Garvin, Pontotoc, and Coal counties in Oklahoma until 6 a.m. Friday.

The weather service said those in the advisory area can expect to see a mix of wet snow and freezing rain, with snow accumulations of 1 to 3 inches. 

Officials said at least four people have died in collisions on treacherous roads as a winter storm moves through Oklahoma and Texas.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said 63-year-old Karen Marie Price of Eufaula died Wednesday evening when her pickup truck veered out of control on a sleet-slickened road and was struck by a tractor-trailer rig.

The patrol says three more people died in two crashes Thursday. A 76-year-old man died after his vehicle slid out of control and struck a tree in Grady County. A Texas man was killed in a collision on Interstate 35 in southern Oklahoma. And a Texas woman died later at a hospital of injuries she suffered in the crash.

Temperatures remained above freezing in most of the KTEN viewing region as of midday, but there were readings below 32 degrees near Ada and Pauls Valley.
