... Icy roads this morning...

After all of the snow and sleet Wednesday and Wednesday night...
the sun came out Thursday and the Mercury climbed above freezing
across much of Arkansas. That led to melting and roads became wet.
Temperatures plummeted after the sun went down... with readings in
the teens to lower 20s early this morning... and some single digits
in the northeast. Water on roads turned to ice.

Many roads across Arkansas have a thin layer of ice... or at least
patches of ice. It is not restricted to bridges and overpasses. The
ice will be difficult to see while driving... and will make the
pavement look wet. Given how cold it is... that wet appearance is
actually ice in many cases.

This cold weather is somewhat unusual for March. Temperatures are
well below normal... and lows this morning will break daily records
at many locations.

The good news is that we will have another day with full
sunshine... and temperatures will warm above freezing again.
Icy roads will become wet later this morning... and travel will
not be as hazardous. Even so... highs today will only be in the
mid 30s to mid 40s... and readings should be in the mid 50s to
mid 60s.

For those headed out this morning... please be careful. If
motorists notice pavement that looks wet... assume it is ice
and slow down. Allow plenty of time to reach your destination
safely.

... Near record low temperatures expected tonight...

In the wake of our latest winter event... full sunshine and an
increasingly strong sun angle allowed for considerable melting
on area roadways.

However... temperatures tonight are expected to plunge to well
below freezing and will approach record lows in many areas. This
will allow any water... slush or snow remaining on area roads to
freeze creating icy and dangerous travel conditions.

Additional melting will occur on Friday with another day of full
sunshine and temperatures a few degrees warmer than what was seen
on Thursday. Highs are expected to top out in the mid 30s to mid
40s with the coldest temperatures occurring where the snow pack is
the deepest.

Please exercise extreme caution if you must travel tonight and
especially around sunrise when temperatures will be at their
lowest. Allow plenty of time to reach your destination safely.
