Parts of northern Louisiana under winter storm warning

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A large portion of northern Louisiana is under a winter storm warning until Monday night.

The National Weather Service says freezing rain and sleet are possible along the Interstate 20 corridor. The area includes Shreveport and Monroe.

The precipitation was expected to begin late Sunday or early Monday and continue through the day.

Parts of Texas, Arkansas and Mississippi are also under winter storm or freezing rain advisories.

Ice can make roads and bridges slick and dangerous.

The Louisiana Department of Transportation says it has sent de-icing materials to places they might be needed.
