Moderate to heavily falling snow is still impacting a decent-sized swath of the southern Plains into the Mississippi Valley, spanning Wichita, Kansas City and St. Louis. Winds will be picking up through tonight, creating some blowing and drifting of snow. Travel will be slow to dangerous along I-35, I-44 and I-70 as well as other highways and secondary roads across this zone.
Meanwhile, some sleet will mix in to create messy travel conditions over a small corridor across Oklahoma and northern Arkansas. Little Rock is among the cities that will get some sleet and snow in the morning, perhaps causing a tricky morning commute.
A bone-chilling, soaking rain will fall farther south in places like Dallas.
A few isolated, but damaging storms could erupt by the evening over central and coastal areas of Texas. Damaging winds and a tornado cannot be ruled out in this zone.
