Northwest Arkansas could see some snow Wednesday morning, followed by a mixture of freezing rain and sleet, according to a winter storm warning issued by the National Weather Service.
The wintry precipitation could be heavy at times during the day both Wednesday and Thursday, including a few isolated thunderstorms. Total sleet accumulation of up to one inch with ice accumulations of one tenth to one half of an inch are expected in some areas.
Power outages and tree damage are possible due to the ice, and roads will likely become slick and hazardous which could impact the morning or evening commute, according to the report.
Wind gusts of up to 30 miles per hour are expected overnight, with temperatures falling into the teens and single digits in some places across the region.
In Fayetteville, a high temperature of 30 and a low of 26 is expected on Wednesday, and a high of 35 and low of 16 is expected on Thursday.
The current daily forecast shows temperatures reaching the mid-40s to low-50s with partly cloudy to sunny skies for the weekend.
