The National Weather Service in Shreveport has issued a winter storm warning for a mixture of freezing rain and sleet, in effect until midnight, for the following counties in northeast Texas and southwest Arkansas:

Sevier, Howard, Little River, Miller, Bowie, Titus, Camp, Morris, Cass, Wood, Upshur, Marion, Smith, Gregg, and Harrison — including the cities of De Queen, Nashville, Ashdown, Texarkana, Mt Pleasant, Pittsburg, Daingerfield, Atlanta, Quitman, Gilmer, Jefferson, Tyler, Longview, and Marshall. The warning also extends into southeastern Oklahoma. This warning replaces the winter weather advisory, which is no longer in effect.

Here’s the full context of the message:
An Arctic cold front has moved across the area this afternoon, producing rapidly dropping temperatures. Rain has already begun to change over to freezing rain and sleet with temperatures falling below freezing. This precipitation will continue through most of the evening hours. Expect some slush to develop during the evening on area roads. Bridges and overpasses will accumulate ice and sleet first, making travel hazardous through the evening. Late tonight, after the precipitation ends, the freezing temperatures will re-freeze any slush or water on the bridges and overpasses. In addition, northerly winds of 15 to 25 mph, combined with rapidly falling temperatures, will produce wind chill readings into the teens and single digits overnight. Significant amounts of sleet accumulation and icing are expected. Travel is likely to be severely impacted.
