Sub-Zero Temps Follow Snow in Okla., Ark.

Spring can't come soon enough for much of the southern U.S.

A winter storm in the nation's midsection dropped nearly 2 feet of snow on areas still digging out from last week's massive storm. Many parts of the south remain under ice and snow.

The storm turned highways into ice rinks and downtown Memphis, Tenn., into a winter wonderland.

In Arkansas, parts of the Natural State saw snow fall for 9 straight hours. The mixture of snow and ice on the roads has made travel treacherous.

"If you have to get out, be very careful," said David Buchanan, Hot Springs, Ak., resident. "Don't use your brakes that much and avoid hills"

"It's a bit dangerous so it's a risk taking walking out here," said Michael Lucas, another Hot Springs resident.

In Springfield, Mo., a woman was killed when her car flipped over due to icy conditions.

For Tulsa, Okla., it has been the snowiest winter on record. Thousands of schools in Oklahoma and Arkansas have cancelled classes and children have taken advantage of the time off for sledding and other fun in the snow.

Forecasters predicted lows of negative 11 in northwest Arkansas and minus 10 degrees in parts of Oklahoma.
