Advisory

Winter Weather Advisory until 11:00AM Sunday

...FREEZING RAIN EXPECTED TO CREATE HAZARDOUS TRAVEL CONDITIONS FROM LATE TONIGHT THROUGH MUCH OF SUNDAY OVER MOST OF THE ARKLAMISS... .A weather disturbance will combine with an arctic cold front moving south into the area to bring a mixture of light freezing and sleet. The wintry precipitation is expected to develop and move into extreme southeast Arkansas and north central Mississippi around midnight, and then gradually develop southward as much colder air moves into the advisory area. It is expected to move well south into northeast Louisiana and portions of central Mississippi along and north of the Interstate 20 corridor by daybreak Sunday, and then into locations just south of Interstate 20 by late Sunday morning and afternoon. The primary concern will be for light ice accumulations due to freezing rain that will cause bridges and overpasses to become very slick and hazardous. ...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM MIDNIGHT TONIGHT TO NOON SUNDAY...
