The first snow of the season hit Central Arkansas Tuesday night into early Wednesday dumping 1 to 2 inches of snow across many parts of the area. Accumulations over an inch and up 2 inches were recorded across Northeast and Eastern Arkansas as well.
The snow stopped falling by the morning commute Wednesday, but icy spots mainly on bridges and overpasses caused significant delays and traffic headaches, as well as numerous accidents. By the mid-morning, sunshine returned to central Arkansas. The visible satellite view from this morning shows the snow on the ground across parts of the State.
