A powerful storm system is expected to bring heavy rain, powerful winds and some snow to parts of Arkansas on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The National Weather Service in Little Rock described the storm system as a "three-headed monster" on its Facebook page. Southeast Arkansas is expected to see 3 inches or more of rain, while the Ozark and Ouachita Mountain areas could see 1 to 3 inches of snow on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

A high wind watch is in effect for central and northeast Arkansas from 6 p.m. Tuesday until Wednesday afternoon. Forecasters say winds could gust as high as 40 mph to 50 mph on Tuesday night.

Forecasters say the wind watch covers the Interstate 40 and U.S. 67 corridors, which will make driving difficult.
