Winter weather expected Monday

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Snow and a mix of wintry weather is expected across much of Arkansas, southern Missouri and the Mid-South Monday.  The National Weather Service has issued Winter Weather Watches and Advisories for much of that area Monday afternoon into Monday night.

In northern and central Arkansas, two to four inches of snow is possible.  Lesser amounts are possible to the north and south of that area.  Snow is expected to begin Monday morning in western Arkansas and move east as the day progresses.  The snow will change to sleet and freezing rain Monday night.  Very little ice accumulation is expected.  

With cold temperatures in place, anything that falls will likely stick to roads and overpasses creating hazardous driving conditions.  If you are traveling in this area, monitor weather and road conditions closely.
