Statement as of 4:21 AM CST on December 05, 2013
... Ice Storm Warning in effect from 6 PM this evening to 6 PM CST
... This replaces the Winter Storm Warning previously in effect...
The National Weather Service in Little Rock has issued an Ice
Storm Warning... which is in effect from 6 PM this evening to 6 PM
CST Friday. The Winter Storm Warning has been cancelled.
* Event... significant ice accumulations are expected across
central Arkansas late tonight through Friday.
* Timing... rain will spread across the area later this morning and
last through Friday. Precipitation will changeover to freezing
rain in west central Arkansas late this afternoon... and in the
Delta Region north of Searcy this evening. By daybreak Friday
morning... wintry precipitation will have shifted south of the
I-40 corridor in central Arkansas... and Mena and Mt Ida
southwest Arkansas. Areas north of Hot Springs... Pine
Bluff... and Stuttgart will transition to mostly sleet... with
some snow or freezing rain mixed at times... by late Friday
* Impact... ice accumulations of one half inch will be common
across the warned area... with storm total ice accumulations of
around an inch being possible from Conway northeast to Newport
and Searcy in the east. In addition to ice accumulations... sleet
accumulations of half an inch to an inch will be
possible... mainly north and east of Searcy.
A Winter Storm Warning means significant amounts of sleet and ice
are expected. Gusty winds are also possible... increasing the
threat of downed trees and power lines due to the weight of
accumulated ice. This will make travel very hazardous or
impossible. Individuals are encouraged to continue to monitor
forecast from the National Weather Service in Little Rock for the
latest on the developing winter storm.
An Ice Storm Warning means severe winter weather conditions are
expected or occurring. Significant amounts of ice accumulations
will make travel dangerous or impossible. Travel is strongly
discouraged. Commerce will likely be severely impacted. If you
must travel... keep an extra flashlight... food... and water in your
vehicle in case of an emergency. Ice accumulations and winds will
likely lead to snapped power lines and falling tree branches that
add to the danger.
