A severe winter storm is scheduled to impact parts of Texas beginning today and continuing through Friday morning. The storm has the potential to produce freezing rain and/or a few inches of snow. As of this morning, American Airlines is the only major carrier to offer a travel waiver for passengers that may have their plans interrupted.
