Weather: Ice Storm Freezes South, Midwest

Ice Storm Freezes South, Midwest

It may have been hitting the 80s in Texas earlier this week, but that’s about to change: the Lone Star state braced Thursday night for an ice storm that has already dumped as much as two feet of snow on parts of the Midwest. The National Weather Service issued winter storm warnings for most of Friday for Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana. The storm will likely deliver cold rain, then freezing temperatures, resulting in ice that makes roads slippery.
