JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - After heavy rains on Friday and Saturday, winter weather moved into Region 8 Sunday with snow and sleet forecasted throughout the area.

The National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the entire area until 10 p.m. Sunday, but the advisory has seen expired.

The weather also caused road conditions along I-555 between Tyronza and Trumann Sunday morning to be difficult.

ArDOT also reported online Sunday morning there were ice patches along Highway 49 from Brinkley to the Cross/Woodruff county line, as well as problems along I-40.

However, by later in the afternoon, ArDOT crews had cleared highways around the state of winter weather.
