LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas — A cold front is expected to sweep through Arkansas by late Saturday, dumping up to 3 inches of snow on higher elevations in the north and bringing flurries in western and central Arkansas.
The National Weather Service in Little Rock says roads in the northern part of the state could become dangerous later Saturday afternoon and overnight as temperatures dip below freezing. Forecasters also say the new precipitation could cause more residual flooding on some already swollen rivers.
The weather service says cold air and breezy conditions are expected by Sunday, with wind chills in single digits across the northern part of the state.
Dry weather is expected at least through Friday, when the state could see its winter storm system.
