Winter Weather Advisory for Tuesday

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Yet another system is going to move into the area on Tuesday with more chances for wintry precipitation.

Light freezing drizzle will be possible overnight with a mixture of freezing rain, sleet, and snow possible by morning. The precipitation should continue into the early afternoon before changing over to all snow in NWA. It may actual change back to all rain in the River Valley depending on the temperatures at the surface. Current thinking is that the temperatures may be a few degrees colder due to existing snow pack.

Here are some of the latest images regarding this system. Please keep in mind that this forecast will change as the event nears and the details become clear.
