Mother Nature is causing more trouble across the nation as freezing rain and sleet move through states from Texas to Tennessee on Tuesday, icing bridges and roads.

The storm system was crawling toward the East and Northeast. Several inches of snow were expected in the Washington, D.C., area.

The National Weather Service issued ice storm warnings from Dallas, Texas, to just north of Memphis, Tennessee. Roads north of Little Rock are passable, but bridges and overpasses are extremely hazardous and ice-covered.

The sleet and freezing rain began Monday afternoon in northwest Arkansas and then moved to central Arkansas. More freezing weather was expected. It was also raining in the southern part of the state.
