This map, courtesy of the National Weather Service, shows various advisories and warnings currently in effect throughout the state. Faulkner County is under a wind chill advisory through 6 a.m. Tuesday.

A wind chill advisory will remain in effect for Faulkner County until 6 a.m. Tuesday as frigid temperatures are expected to linger into the second day of the work week.

The National Weather Service said temperatures Tuesday morning would range from a little below zero to around 12 degrees. Meteorologist John Robinson said winds are expected to diminish over time, and become less of a factor.

Another round of wintry precipitation is possible Wednesday, with the main threat being freezing rain and sleet, Robinson said. Temperatures are expected to rise from the south to the north during Wednesday night and into Thursday. Northern Arkansas will be the last area to see a threat of wintry weather, in the form of ice during daytime hours Thursday.

Another round of winter weather advisories is expected with the system, Robinson said.
