LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A winter weather advisory is in place for counties in southeastern Arkansas, where freezing rain and sleet is predicted.
The weather service issued the advisory for Arkansas, Bradley, Calhoun, Cleveland, Desha, Drew and Lincoln counties until 4 p.m. Monday. Forecasters say precipitation will begin as sleet but will eventually transition to freezing rain.
The weather service says temperatures should warm above freezing in the afternoon. One-tenth of an inch of ice is possible, especially on bridges and elevated roads.
Farther north, snow and sleet are possible in a line from Camden to Little Rock to Brinkley - but forecasters say they don't expect it to accumulate because of warm ground temperatures.
