A storm set to bring travel problems along a 1,500-mile stretch from the Central states into the Northeast has brought an onslaught of snow, sleet and rain Wednesday morning.
From Oklahoma City to Boston, snow and sleet will create treacherous travel into the Thursday morning commute.
"An area of sleet is expanding over northern Oklahoma to southern Missouri with a swath of snow farther north in eastern Kansas and central Missouri," AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said.
