    City of Denver road trucks spread deicer on the roads late Thursday, Nov. 26, 2015, in northeast Denver. A storm dropping freezing rain and light snow has enveloped the intermountain West on Thanksgiving Day and forecasters predict the cold weather will linger into the weekend ahead.

    At least fourteen deaths have been blamed on a series of storms that brought freezing conditions across the nation's midsection since Thursday, and despite an increase in temperatures on Sunday, the relief was not expected to last long, forecasters said, NBC News reported.

    Nebraska, South Dakota, Iowa and Minnesota could see solid swaths of snow, according to Michael Palmer, lead meteorologist at the Weather Channel. Some areas in southern Minnesota could see a foot of snow, Palmer said.

    Meanwhile, up to four inches of rain was forecast for Northeastern Texas and central Arkansas Sunday, adding to the threat of flooding in those states.

    In Oklahoma, authorities were working to restore power to more than 91,000 after broken, ice-covered tree limbs downed power lines.
