Arkansas will see light, wintry precipitation starting Saturday night and into Sunday morning, the National Weather Service in Little Rock said in a statement.

The service's warning coordination meteorologist John Robinson said that the majority of the wintry mix will occur in the southeastern half of the state. Northern Arkansas will most likely receive snow, "with perhaps a little freezing drizzle," while central and southern parts of the state should see sleet, freezing rain and possibly a little snow, he said.

According to Robinson, precipitation amounts will most likely reach up to "a trace or a few hundredths of an inch."

Eastern Arkansas should get more precipitation amounts, but he said that they should not exceed one-tenth of an inch.

"With the ground as cold as it is already, even small amounts will create icy places on roads," Robinson said. "It's possible that [winter weather] advisories may be issued later this afternoon or evening for additional counties in the east or southeast parts of the state.

Robinson said more wintry weather could happen starting Monday night into Tuesday, with mainly light snow in the northern Arkansas and light sleet or freezing rain in southern parts of the state.

About power outages: Arkansans love their trees, & most won't let the power companies trim more than a few limbs-just enough to get it off the lines. We told First Electric to cut or trim anything which might cause an outage on our property. One man down the road has 6-7 trees with the crowns cut out, & the branches encircling the lines. Remember, it may not be the utilities fault when power goes out, it may be your neighbor's.

In other states, the power company has an obligation to cut trees that effect reliability.
