UPDATE...

OVERALL THE FORECAST IS IN DECENT SHAPE...BUT TEMPERATURES HAVE
BEEN A LITTLE STUBBORN TO RISE IN PLACES SO FELT IT PRUDENT TO GO
AHEAD AND EXTEND THE WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY A LITTLE FURTHER
SOUTH WITH THE EVENING UPDATE.

RUSSELLVILLE...CLINTON...AND EVEN BATESVILLE HAVE BEEN SLOW TO
RISE THIS EVENING AND ARE STILL SITTING AT OR BELOW THE FREEZING
MARK AS OF 7 PM. SURFACE OBSERVATIONS AS WELL AS REPORTS FROM
SOCIAL MEDIA CONFIRM THAT SOME LIGHT FREEZING RAIN IS OCCURRING IN
THOSE AREAS...AND HAVE EVEN SEEN SOME REPORTS THAT I-40 WAS
SLIPPERY IN SPOTS OUT IN JOHNSON COUNTY. FURTHERMORE...GIVEN THE
OBS AT THE BOONEVILLE RAWS AND STATIONS TO THE SOUTH AT MENA AND
MT IDA...FEEL PRETTY CONFIDENT THAT LOWER ELEVATIONS IN
YELL...LOGAN...AND SCOTT COUNTIES ARE ALSO STILL EXPERIENCING SOME
LIGHT FREEZING RAIN. FOR THESE REASONS...WENT AHEAD AND EXTENDED
THE WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY SOUTHWARD A BIT TO PICK UP THESE
LOCATIONS AND SET THE EXPIRATION TIME AT 12Z TO COINCIDE WITH THE
PREVIOUS ADVISORY AREA. ADDITIONAL ICE ACCUMULATIONS OF A FEW
HUNDREDTHS COULD OCCUR...ESPECIALLY IN THE NORTHWEST.
