Winter Storm Cleon:
Next Phase to Bring Major Ice Storm to Texas,
Oklahoma, Arkansas; Snow from Plains to Ohio Valley



Winter Storm Cleon, the third named winter storm of the 2013-14 season, has already dumped a swath of locally heavy snow from the Rockies to the Upper Midwest. In both of those regions, some locations have received over 2 feet of snow.

Now, Cleon is poised to deliver its next wintry punch – a significant snow and ice storm that will stretch from the Southern Plains to the Ohio Valley as we close out the workweek. First, let's mop up the last bits of Cleon's impacts on the Rockies and Midwest.

By Thursday night, precipitation becomes heavier in parts of the Southern Plains, leading to a threat of significant icing in north Texas, southeastern Oklahoma and parts of western and northern Arkansas. North of those areas, a transition to snow can be expected along much of the I-44 corridor in Oklahoma and Missouri. East of the Mississippi, some of the rain will start changing over to freezing rain along the northern fringe of the precipitation over the Ohio Valley. The potential will exist for severe disruptions to travel and electric power.
