Freezing temperatures, wintry weather sweep U.S.

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) -  Parts of East Texas are preparing again this morning for snow and ice and what that will do to streets and bridges. It's all part of a winter storm that's already pummeled the Midwest.

Winter storm warnings now stretch from the Texas Gulf Coast across the south and up the Atlantic Seaboard to Virginia. Meteorologists say several inches of snow could fall, with ice mixed in. In Alabama, Governor Ray Bently has already declared a state of emergency. In Minnesota, bitter cold temperatures will keep most kids home from school for yet another day.

The storm will impact travel across the country as well. Thousands of flights have already been canceled for flights into and out of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas.
