THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR A LARGE PART OF ARKANSAS.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

SOME SLICK ROADWAYS REMAIN THIS MORNING FROM THE SUNDAY WINTRY
PRECIPITATION...ESPECIALLY IN THE AREAS THAT SAW THE HEAVIEST SLEET
AND SNOW ACROSS WESTERN AND PORTIONS OF CENTRAL AND EAST CENTRAL
ARKANSAS. GIVEN THAT TEMPERATURES HAVE FALLEN BELOW FREEZING FOR
MOST AREAS EARLY THIS MORNING...ANY REMAINING WATER ON ROADWAYS
ACROSS THE SOUTHERN AND SOUTHEASTERN SECTIONS OF THE AREA COULD ALSO
FREEZE...CREATING SOME PATCHY SLICK SPOTS.

TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN IN THE 20S THROUGHOUT THE DAY FOR MOST
AREAS...WITH MAYBE SOME AREAS ACROSS THE SOUTH WARMING TO AROUND 30.
WITH THE COLD AIR IN PLACE...A NEW STORM SYSTEM WILL BRING SOME MORE
ACCUMULATING WINTRY PRECIPITATION THROUGH THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY
EVENING.

SNOWFALL WILL BEGIN ACROSS WEST CENTRAL AND SOUTHWEST SECTIONS OF
THE STATE BY MID MORNING...THEN SPREAD FURTHER EAST BY AROUND THE
NOON HOUR. BY THIS TIME...MOST OF THE SOUTHERN TWO THIRDS OF THE
STATE WILL BE SEEING SOME WINTRY PRECIPITATION. UNLIKE THE STORM
SYSTEM ON SUNDAY...MOST AREAS SHOULD SEE SNOWFALL WITH TODAYS EVENT.
THE EXCEPTION WILL BE AREAS ALONG AND SOUTH OF A LINE FROM GURDON TO
DUMAS WHERE MOSTLY SLEET WILL BE SEEN...WITH SOME SNOW MIXING IN
OCCASIONALLY DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON HOURS.

ACCUMULATIONS WILL BE HIGHEST ACROSS WEST CENTRAL AND PORTIONS OF
CENTRAL ARKANSAS WHERE 1 TO 2 INCHES ARE EXPECTED. THIS WILL BE
WITHIN AN AREA FROM RUSSELLVILLE...TO LITTLE ROCK...TO PINE
BLUFF...TO ARKADELPHIA. HIGHER AMOUNTS OF 2 TO 3 INCHES WILL BE
POSSIBLE WITHIN AN AREA FROM DANVILLE...TO HOT SPRINGS...TO
GLENWOOD AND MENA. THE HIGHEST AMOUNTS WILL BE SEEN IN THE TERRAIN
OF THE OUACHITA MOUNTAINS IN THIS REGION OF THE STATE...WHERE
LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS OVER 3 INCHES WILL BE POSSIBLE.

SOUTHERN SECTIONS OF THE STATE WILL SEE AROUND AN INCH...WITH
LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS NEARING TWO INCHES...INCLUDING SLEET
ACCUMULATION.

AREAS ACROSS NORTHERN ARKANSAS WILL SEE ONLY LIGHT SNOW OR
FLURRIES...ESPECIALLY AREAS NORTH OF A LINE FROM JASPER TO
BATESVILLE. ACCUMULATIONS SHOULD BE LIGHT...THOUGH AREAS JUST SOUTH
OF THIS LINE MAY SEE SOME ACCUMULATION OF AN INCH OR SO OF SNOW.

EXPECT MOST OF THE PRECIPITATION TO MOVE EAST OF THE STATE BY THIS
EVENING.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY

MORE WEAK STORM SYSTEMS WILL MOVE OVER THE REGION THROUGHOUT THE
REST OF THE WEEK...WITH ADDITIONAL CHANCES FOR WINTRY PRECIPITATION
POSSIBLE. ONE SYSTEM WILL PASS GENERALLY SOUTH OF THE STATE ON
WEDNESDAY...THOUGH SOME MOISTURE WILL LIFT NORTH INTO SOUTHERN
SECTIONS OF THE STATE. ADDITIONAL WINTRY PRECIPITATION WOULD BE
POSSIBLE...ESPECIALLY IF THE MOISTURE LIFTS FAR ENOUGH NORTH. THE
BEST CHANCES FOR SEEING WINTRY PRECIPITATION ON WEDNESDAY WILL
REMAIN ACROSS THE SOUTHERN THIRD OF THE STATE.

ANOTHER SYSTEM WILL MOVE SOUTH INTO THE STATE ON THURSDAY...BRINGING
SOME LIGHT SNOW OR FLURRIES TO NORTHERN SECTIONS OF THE STATE. MORE
UNSETTLED CONDITIONS WILL BE SEEN OVER THE WEEKEND...THOUGH
TEMPERATURES MAY BE WARM ENOUGH TO SEE JUST RAIN. SOME UNCERTAINTY
DOES EXIST FOR THE WEEKEND HOWEVER...SO REFER TO THE LATEST
FORECASTS IN THE COMING DAYS.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED. HOWEVER...REPORTS OF SNOW
AND SLEET ACCUMULATIONS WILL BE WELCOME.
