(November 24, 2013) A large storm packing a mixture of sleet, rain, ice and snow was making its way Sunday through Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico and other parts of the southwest, creating a wintry mess, just as travelers begin to head out for Thanksgiving.
The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for chunks of North Texas including Central Texas from noon Sunday until midday Monday.
Parts of Oklahoma are also under a winter storm warning, while an advisory has been issued for other parts of the state.
Dallas was preparing for the ice by declaring "Ice Force Level 1," code for sending 30 sanding trucks to trouble shoot hazardous road conditions.
National Weather Service meteorologist Tom Bradshaw says he expects the area to receive the worst weather overnight and early Monday.
