Winter Storm Warning Issued for Texarkana Area for Tonight
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for the area for tonight through early tomorrow.
After a partly sunny warmer day, an arctic cold front will move through the area later this afternoon or early evening. Temperatures will drop rapidly and a mixture of rain, freezing rain and sleet, should transition to mostly all snow after midnight and may continue into midday Tuesday.
The weather service says a couple of inches of snow, possibly more in some spots, could accumulate before ending around noon tomorrow.
If this does occur, bridges & overpasses and even secondary roads will become icy and hazardous.
Along with the precipitation and cold temperatures will come strong north winds tonight and part of the day Tuesday, which will make the wind chills plummet.
Temperatures are not expected to get above freezing at any point on Tuesday, and could dip as low as 13 degrees on Wednesday morning. It could be Thursday before high temperatures during the day actually get above freezing.
A warming trend for the upcoming weekend, with a chance of rain showers is in the forecast
Until then bundle up and drive carefully.
