This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for a Large Part of Arkansas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Light snowfall on the order of 1 to 2 inches, with locally higher
amounts possible, will occur in northern Arkansas near the
Missouri border. Snowfall in the northern parts of the state
should begin to taper off significantly by midday.

For this evening and into the overnight hours, widespread snow
accumulations of 2 to 4 inches are expected for central and
southern Arkansas. This area will be roughly bound by the I-30
corridor from Little Rock southwestward, and by the I-40 corridor
east of Little Rock. The highest amounts of snow, around 4
inches, will likely occur within 15 to 20 miles of a line from
roughly Camden northeast through De Witt.

In addition to the snowfall, bitterly cold air will spill into the
state behind the arctic front moving through Arkansas later today.
Windy conditions accompanying these cold temperatures will produce
wind chill values between zero and roughly negative 10 degrees for
northern and western Arkansas late this evening through Tuesday

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday Through Sunday

The Arctic cold front that moved through the state in the Monday
through Monday night time frame will be located well to the south of
the state by Tuesday morning. Light snow will be ongoing across
central and southern sections of the state but will be ending by
late morning.

Gusty winds are expected behind this boundary with wind chill
readings as cold as 10 degrees below zero across the north Tuesday
morning. Elsewhere, wind chills will be in the single digits. The
winds will slowly subside during the afternoon as high pressure
builds in.

However, the aforementioned high will be of Arctic origin and
temperatures will be well below normal through the middle of the
week. High temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday are not expected to
get above freezing for the majority of the state with lows in the
single digits and teens.

Temperatures will begin to moderate late next week as the Arctic
high begins to slide east and southerly winds return.
