A winter storm warning has been issued beginning at 2 p.m. today, and the National Weather Service says several inches of snow is possible tonight. 

“A strong winter storm will be moving into the four state area today and continue this evening and overnight, ending Monday morning,” the NWS said. “Rain and some mixed precipitation during the day today will transition to all snow or a wintry mix this evening and continue into early Monday morning. Accumulating snow will be possible across the entire area with the greatest amounts across portions of north central and northwest Louisiana, south central Arkansas and east and northeast Texas.”

Heavy, wet snow is expected with accumulations between 2 and 5 inches across the region.

“Difficult travel conditions are possible as roads may become slick, especially on bridges and elevated roadways,” the NWS said. “The hazardous conditions could impact the morning commute.”
