North Arkansas under Ice Storm, Winter Storm Warnings

Winter weather advisory in place for other parts of state.
Winter weather continues moving through parts of Arkansas, mostly the northern half of the state.

An ice storm warning is in effect until four o'clock this afternoon for much of northern Arkansas.

A mix of freezing rain and sleet will continue in the area today.
Ice accumulations of one-quarter to one-half inch are possible, with heavier amounts in higher elevations.

The most significant icing is expected through early afternoon.

Roads are expected to become treacherous, especially bridges and overpasses. Widespread power outages are also expected as ice builds up on trees and power lines.

A winter storm warning is in effect until noon today for Northwest Arkansas.

Areas of freezing rain with a few thunderstorms are expected. Significant accumulations of ice will result in about a quarter-of-an-inch in many areas. Amounts may approach a half-inch across Carroll and Madison counties.

The freezing rain in Northwest Arkansas is expected to end by mid-afternoon. Wind gusts to 25 miles per hour is expected to put stress on any ice coated power lines and tree limbs.

A winter weather advisory remains in effect until noon for central parts of the state from Mena to Jonesboro, which includes the Hot Springs, Conway and Little Rock areas.
