...SLICK SPOTS ON ROADS POSSIBLE THIS MORNING...

Early this morning light rain and drizzle will move into southern
Indiana and north central Kentucky. As temperatures fall, this
precipitation will transition to snow showers, possibly mixed with
some freezing rain during the changeover. The best chances for a
wintry mix and snow showers will be after 6am CST/7am
EST...continuing through the morning hours. The scattered snow
showers will then quickly dissipate this afternoon.

Slick spots will be possible on roadways where these showers pass
through. Keep an eye on the weather in your area and be on the
lookout for slick spots, especially on bridges.

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Cooler temperatures and less strong winds are expected this
afternoon...which will bring slightly improved wild fire
conditions for today compared to the breezy...warm and extremely
dry conditions observed on Monday. Even so...humidity levels will
remain below 30 percent during the warmest part of the day. As a
result...the wild fire danger will remain high for all of Arkansas
for Tuesday.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday Through Monday

Overall the wildfire danger over Arkansas will remain high due to
the extended period of low rainfall. Winds will increase again
from the southwest for Wednesday...along with warmer temperatures.
Near Red Flag conditions may be seen again on Wednesday
afternoon. Outdoor burning is strongly discouraged...and most of
the state is now under a burn ban.

Rain chances do return Friday...but only light rain may be
possible. Slightly better rain chances arrive Sunday...with the
potential for a bit more significant rainfall. Until widespread
significant rainfall is observed however...expect the wild fire
danger to remain at high levels given the severe to extreme
drought currently in place.

.Spotter Information Statement...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
