Afternoon Snow Expected in Arkansas

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Friday morning snowfall has tapered off across portions of north-central Arkansas but more is on the way between noon and 4 p.m. The wintry precipitation created the usual travel issues, leading to school and government office closings..
The National Weather Service in Little Rock issued a Winter Weather Advisory for snow that runs through 3 p.m. Friday. The agency reported that it had measured 0.8 inches of snowfall at its offices in North Little Rock through 745 a.m. Friday.
Snowfall is expected to reach 1 to 2 inches, with some higher amounts in the higher terrain such as the Ozark and Ouachita mountains.  As of 4:30 a.m., Little Rock had seen a dusting while more northern areas of the state had seen an inch. Around 1 inch of additional snowfall is possible along and south of Interstate 40 Friday afternoon.
With temperatures well below freezing, expect hazardous road conditions to develop shortly after the snowfall begins. A winter weather advisory for snow means that periods of snow will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow-covered roads and limited visibility.
