...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.
