Icy weather has caused thousands of SWEPCO customers to lose power in the Texarkana area this morning.

Bowie and Cass Counties in Texas had thousands of customers without power throughout the morning, as was the case in Miller and Little River Counties in Arkansas.  A handful of customers were without power throughout the day in Caddo, Bossier, and Webster Parishes.

A winter weather advisory is still in effect for the area until noon today as temperatures will hover around the freezing mark this morning and rain or sleet continues to fall.  The icy precipitation has been more concentrated around Texarkana.

The rest of the day will continue to be cold and rainy, with a high temperature of 39 degrees.  It’ll continue to stay cold tonight, but likely not cold enough for another freeze.  Low 34 degrees in Shreveport.
