... Black ice will remain a problem over all of The Ark-la-tex
this afternoon through much of Wednesday...

Widespread snowfall totals of one to three inches has fallen
across much of The Ark la tex this morning, with the snow expected
to diminish across deep East Texas and the southern sections of
northcentral Louisiana this afternoon. However, temperatures will
remain below freezing this afternoon areawide, with the cloud
cover expected to diminish along and south of the Interstate 20
corridor by tonight.

The existing snowpack, clearing sky, and weakening winds will
allow temperatures to quickly fall into teens and lower 20s this
evening, and into the lower and middle teens areawide by
Wednesday morning. As a result, any melting snow on the roadways,
bridges, and overpasses this afternoon will quickly refreeze into
black ice this evening, making travel very treacherous.
Temperatures will only warm slowly Wednesday, but will likely
remain below freezing until early to mid afternoon, if at all.
Thus, black ice on area roadways will remain a problem through
much of Wednesday, with this threat again increasing Wednesday
night as temperatures fall into the teens once again.

Travel is strongly discouraged across the region this afternoon
through Wednesday. If you must travel this afternoon or tonight,
please drive slowly, allow plenty of time to reach your
destination, and allow extra space between you and the other
drivers around you. Be sure you pack a winter weather survival
kit, by including food, water, extra blankets, a flashlight, and
provide a means to charge your cell phone or other electronic
devices in case you are stranded. Be sure you have a full tank of
gas before leaving as well.
