Snow is expected to fall in parts of northern and western Arkansas early Monday morning.
The northern third of the state will see snow on Monday morning, John Robinson, meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said Sunday.
Hazardous driving conditions over a large part of the state are expected, Robinson said.
The storm will move west across the Arkansas border around midnight on Sunday. Two to four inches of snow and sleet are expected across northwestern Arkansas.
Freezing rain and sleet are possible in the southern third of the state Monday morning.
The storm will begin moving out of the region Monday night.

Based on the frigid weather gripping Little Rock over the next few days, Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola announced that the following shelters will be open over the next few days to provide shelter:
· Salvation Army – 1111 West Markham St.
· Union Rescue Mission – 3001 Confederate Blvd.
· Canvas Community Church – 1111 7th Street
· Compassion Center – 3618 West Roosevelt Road
Stodola also announced that the Little Rock Police Department will be offering the homeless rides to the shelters. He urged residents to call the LRPD at 371-4829 and give them the location of people on the streets that they believe to be homeless so rides can be given to one of the shelters.
“As a community we need to reach out and help those less fortunate who find themselves on the streets without a shelter over their heads,” said Stodola. “It is a civic duty for all of us.”
