Ice Storm Warning In Place For Arkansas
The National Weather Service has issued an ice storm warning for the Interstate 40 corridor and other areas in Arkansas.
The warning is in effect from 6 p.m. Thursday until 6 p.m. Friday and stretches from the Oklahoma border in the west, the Texas border in the south to the Tennessee border in the east.
The warning includes Little Rock. Forecasters say rain will spread across the area Thursday morning and will change over to freezing rain by late afternoon.
By daybreak Friday, the wintry precipitation will shift south of the I-40 corridor and into southwest Arkansas.
The weather service says a half-inch of ice is likely in the counties included in the warning. Some areas from Conway northeast to Newport and Searcy could see ice accumulations of 1 inch.
