LITTLE ROCK, AR – Many Arkansans were forced to stay home from work and school Tuesday as an ice storm moved into the state.

Freezing rain, heavy at times, started coating trees, power lines and roads before dawn as it entered the state from the west.

It arrived in Central Arkansas just in time for the morning rush hour, creating slick roads and hazardous driving conditions.

Temperatures made it up to freezing by early afternoon and were expected to keep rising for a few more hours before dropping back below freezing during the night.
