The National Weather Service in Shreveport has issued a Winter Storm Warning for much of the Ark-La-Tex. The move came ahead of an arctic blast that's expected to strike the area early next week.

Right now, the exact amounts of wintry precipitation remain questionable, with the National Weather Service even suggesting numbers between one tenth of an inch up to 2 inches. Sleet, snow, and freezing can are all expected.

Here are the exact terms of the warning from the National Weather Service:


* WHAT...Heavy mixed precipitation expected. Total sleet and snow
accumulations of up to two inches and ice accumulations between
one tenth to quarter of an inch.

* WHERE...Portions of south central Arkansas, north central and
northwest Louisiana and northeast Texas.

* WHEN...From noon Sunday to 6 PM CST Monday.

* IMPACTS...Plan on slippery road conditions. The hazardous
conditions could impact the morning or evening commute.


If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food, and water in
your vehicle in case of an emergency.

Based on some of the published forecasts, the precipitation could last between Sunday night and Monday night. Temperatures will dip down into the teens in the overnight hours, with high temps during the day hovering around freezing. With sunshine in the forecast Tuesday, there is a chance most of the wintry mix could be melted by then.
