Southwestern winter storm pushing east

Oklahoma City (AP) -- More than 10 inches of snow has fallen on the ground in parts of southwestern Oklahoma, as an icy storm that began in the West moves eastward in the run-up to Thanksgiving.

A winter weather warning is in effect for southwestern Arkansas. Forecasters said the area should get the worst of the storm through Monday afternoon.

Parts of Texas have also been getting a mix of sleet and freezing rain. Around dawn Monday in Dallas, temperatures edged above freezing, but rain continued to make roads dangerous. Nearly 300 American Airlines and American Eagle flights were cancelled in and out of Dallas due to the weather.

There were similar disruptions Sunday. Forecasters expect the Arctic mass to head south and east the next couple of days, threatening plans for pre-Thanksgiving travel. The weather has been blamed in at least 10 deaths in traffic accidents.
