Snow, Sleet Falls across Arkansas

LITTLE ROCK, AR - A storm system moved across Arkansas today, bringing sleet and snow, closing some schools and making roads slick.

Three to six inches of snow covered western and northwestern parts of the state early this morning; about an inch accumulated in central Arkansas, where Little Rock saw its first snow of the winter.  Light rain fell in the south.  Northeast Arkansas has been pelted with both snow and sleet, with several school districts in northeast Arkansas and southern Missouri closed this morning.

The National Weather Service issued winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories as the storm moved northeast across the state.

Early morning temperatures ranged from the 20s in northern Arkansas to above freezing in the south.  The weather service said the snow would taper off as today's highs reached into the upper 30s over the northern part of the state and near 50 degrees in the south.

The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies tomorrow, but also another chance of snow Thursday morning.
