WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ARKANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
525 AM CST Mon Jan 16 2018

Winter made an appearance over all of Arkansas Monday and continues
in force across southern Arkansas at this time. Snowfall began in
northern Arkansas shortly after sunrise Monday. One to three inches
of additional snowfall was seen across the north.

An arctic cold front moved through the state Monday and Monday night
with temperatures dropping like a rock behind the boundary. As the
cold air poured into the state, snow began falling across portions
of central and southern Arkansas. The snow continued for most of the
night and has now pushed off to the southeast part of the state.

Snowfall amounts ranged from less than an inch northwest of Little
Rock with 1 to 3 inches of snow in central sections and 3 to 5
inches across the southeast. Locally higher amounts are likely in
spots.

At the 5 AM hour, snow was still falling over the southeast and east
central parts of the state. The snow was moving off slowly towards
the east and should exit the state this morning. Temperatures are
cold with readings ranging from the single digits across the north
to the mid 20s over the south. Winds are from the Northwest around 5
to 10 mph with higher gusts creating dangerous wind chill values
that are well below zero in spots.

All winter weather advisories, winter storm warnings and wind chill
advisories that are currently in effect will expire before noon.

Dry weather will return to the forecast through at least Friday.
Very cold air will follow the front with high temperatures on
Tuesday and Wednesday remaining below freezing for most of Arkansas
with warmer temperatures returning as we head into the weekend.
