TULSA, Okla. (AP) — The National Weather Service says precipitation that brought an unusual May snowfall to the state has moved to the east, but only after setting a record for the latest snow on record.

Forecasters say a half-inch or so of snow fell in parts of Adair County on Friday morning before the system moved east into Arkansas.

National Weather Service meteorologist Amy Jankowski at the Tulsa office says there does not appear to be much of a chance that any further snow will fall when the system curls back into the state. Temperatures are expected to warm into the morning.

The weather service issued freeze watches and warnings for all but southeastern Oklahoma through Friday morning.
