JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – An overnight snow left a blanket white across Arkansas Saturday morning. Most roads in the state are covered with snow or a wintry mix. Most areas received less than two inches of snow.

Police reported numerous vehicles off the roadway during the overnight hours. Even with a light covering of snow, the roadways in many places are slick. Drivers are encouraged to move slow and break well before coming to a stop.

In Jonesboro, city crews worked through the early morning hours Saturday laying sand on its streets and scraping the snow from roads. Approximately one inch of snow accumulated in the city.

Temperatures are expected to be near freezing Saturday. Even with cloudy conditions, road conditions should improve through the day. Temperatures are expected to rise above freezing Sunday before another round of winter weather moves in early next week.
