Freezing Rain Possible Today in Parts of Arkansas

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Light freezing rain is possible in parts of Arkansas today.

A winter weather advisory is posted for most of the southern part of the state.  The National Weather Service says freezing rain accumulations are expected to be light, but that will be enough to make travel hazardous on raised surfaces.  Points north also have a chance of wintery precipitation today or tonight.

Temperatures are expected to warm above freezing in the afternoon for south Arkansas.  The National Weather Service advises Arkansas residents to keep informed today of the changing weather conditions.

The system is forecast to move out of the state, with a warming trend expected this weekend.
