Still, the severe weather could ramp back up Tuesday as it sweeps toward the East Coast, where it is poised to threaten plans for those traveling during a long holiday weekend.
The storm started in the West and as of Monday was blamed for at least 11 deaths. It limped across Arkansas with a smattering of snow, sleet and freezing rain.
Meteorologists say it arrived in Arkansas a bit later than expected Monday and temperatures were able to creep up a bit. As it continues east, heavy rains and strong winds could impact airports up and down the coast.
