Texas to Tennessee: Winter Storm Impacts Millions

The next winter storm in the South is already taking shape, slated to spread snow, sleet and freezing rain from Texas to Tennessee.

Travel conditions will quickly deteriorate as the mix of wintry precipitation develops from west-central Texas to western Kentucky throughout Sunday.

While areas from the Texas Panhandle to western Kentucky have primarily snow, a thin area reaching from central Texas to western Tennessee is forecast to receive sleet and freezing rain in addition to the snow.

This can quickly lead to slick spots on roadways as temperatures dip below freezing, especially on bridges, overpasses and untreated surfaces.

Millions of people will be impacted by this storm including the residents of Dallas, Fort Worth, Little Rock and Jackson, Tenn.

As of early Sunday morning, nearly 600 flights have been canceled at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

More delays and cancelations are likely across the area as the wintry precipitation overspreads the region.

Snow, sleet and freezing rain will taper off on Sunday night as the storm begins to focus on the Northeast.

Temperatures are forecast to climb above freezing on Monday in the same areas that will have some ice accumulations on Sunday, helping to melt some of the ice.

With temperatures dipping below freezing once again on Monday night, any wet surfaces from the snow and ice melt from the day may re-freeze, reviving the threat of slick spots and travel delays.
