A cold front that swept the state Saturday night will bring several inches of snow into north Arkansas and below freezing temperatures, the National Weather Service in Little Rock said.

Areas in north Arkansas are expected to receive at least 1 inch of snow accumulation, with some getting between 3-5 inches, according to a National Weather Service map.

John Robinson, the weather service's warning coordination meteorologist, said the majority of wintery precipitation will move out of Arkansas late Sunday afternoon, but light snow may linger into the night.

Bitter cold temperatures will remain in Arkansas on Sunday night, with wind chill values reaching between minus 10 degrees and minus 20 degrees, according to the weather service. Wind chill describes the feeling of cold created by the combined effects of brisk wind and low temperatures.

Robinson said wind chill warnings have been issued for nine counties in north central Arkansas and that they are rare for the state. When they are issued, forecasters are indicating that "it is going to be a very serious situation."

"Make no mistake: For anyone caught outside, this could be a life-threatening situation, especially for the homeless, children or Alzheimer's patients who wander off," Robinson said. "Please check on people who might not have adequate heat."

Temperatures are expected to rise across the state Tuesday, but there is still a possibility that freezing rain or sleet could occur in north Arkansas, Robinson said.

A map is posted here with 6 colours supposedly representing different weather conditions.
There is no legend stating what each colour represents. What is the purpose of the map?

Look to the lower right of the map, grant there are only four color tabs but you should understand.
