After yesterday's dangerous freezing rain, sleet and snow event in Oklahoma and west Texas, the massive winter storm system continues today, with winter storm warnings in place from Texas to coastal Virginia. Eastern Oklahoma and the northern half of Arkansas into west Tennessee and northern Mississippi are currently receiving the majority of the precip. Moderate to heavy sleet and some freezing rain have been falling in central AR and is likely in the Memphis area into northern MS, which will cause substantial travel problems today and into the weekend, but places to the north and west have been experiencing snow since the overnight-hours, including the areas of Oklahoma that received all the freezing rain and sleet yesterday. Several inches of snow is expected today across OK, with heavier amounts near the AR border -- northern AR could see over 12" of snow in some areas! We will continue to update throughout the event - below is video from Reed and Chris yesterday afternoon as they got out in the freezing rain and sleet in Norman.
