A look at the winter weather tweets across the U.S.

A winter storm continues to wreak havoc from Texas and Oklahoma east to the Mississippi and Tennessee Valleys.

Take a look at what people have been posting on social media highlighting the storm over the past few days. We'll start in the middle of it in Arkansas, where ice build up as accumulated on trees making for a mess.

And another from Arkansas. Not something you like to see!

Transitioning to the Dallas area in Texas, icing seems to be a bit of an issue there as well. This is exactly what we do not want to see in the D.C. area come Sunday.

The National Weather Service is reporting 1-2 inches of snow and sleet in the Dallas-Fort Worth area with even higher amounts to the northwest of the city.

And another from the Dallas area.

Moving into Indianapolis, cold air wasn't just at the surface, allowing for all snow to develop rather than the icing seen south. One person sent in a picture of their snow measurement which was up to 3.25".

As far as the D.C. area is concerned, we started in the 60s this morning, but have quickly dropped into the 50s and 40s and will continue to move into the 40s through the remainder of the day.

Areas of rain will be likely late this morning and into the afternoon hours. Rain may be heavy at times, but it is expected to be rain, no snow, no sleet, no freezing rain. We can deal with that!

Our chances for wintry precipitation will increase on Sunday. You can read about it here in our blog from last night. I'll be working on a new blog which I'll post this afternoon on the latest updates on Sunday's storm. I really don't think anyone is hoping for what is going on out west!
