The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for most of Northwest Arkansas, to remain in effect through noon on Thursday.

Snow is already falling in Fayetteville, and forecasters say between 2-4 inches of snow and sleet could accumulate throughout the day.

Precipitation is expected to turn to ice and freezing rain at around midnight, with additional accumulation of up to one inch is expected overnight before turning to rain for much of the day on Thursday.

Be careful out there, folks.
