Winter Weather Advisory For Counties In North And Central Arkansas
While central Arkansas has seen some sleet and snowflakes today, there has been no accumulation because temperatures have remained above freezing.
But with another round of precipitation expected, the National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for counties in north and central Arkansas for late Wednesday through Thursday afternoon.
Senior Forecaster John Lewis says little to no accumulation is expected in the Little Rock area.
“It’s kind of a mix of a little bit of light rain, sleet, maybe a little bit of light snow. It’s not going to amount too much here locally with temperatures above freezing. Really not expecting any problems along area roadways,” said Lewis.
“But as you head north of the area, north toward Conway and points northward toward the Missouri border, I think it’s going to be mainly freezing rain and sleet. Could be quite a bit of ice in north of Little Rock area with half to three-quarters of an inch of ice and probably some widespread power outages as well.”
With an overnight low in Little Rock expected to reach 31, there could be some slick spots on roads.
