Arkansas Gets A Blast From Wintry Storm

(November 25, 2013) More than ten inches of snow was on the ground Monday in parts of southwestern Oklahoma, as an icy storm that began in the West moves eastward in the run-up to Thanksgiving.

A winter weather warning was in effect Monday for southwestern Arkansas.

Forecasters say the area should get the worst of the storm through Monday afternoon.

Parts of Texas were also getting a mix of sleet and freezing rain.

Around dawn Monday in Dallas, temperatures edged above freezing, but rain continued to make roads dangerous.

Nearly 300 American Airlines and American Eagle flights were canceled Monday in and out of Dallas because of the weather.

There were similar disruptions Sunday.

Forecasters expect the Arctic mass to head south and east over the next couple of days, threatening plans for pre-Thanksgiving travel.

The weather has been a factor in at least 10 deaths in traffic accidents.
