This radar map shows a wintry weather system currently moving through Arkansas.

As Sunday moves into the afternoon hours, snow should be seen north of a line from Mena to Conway to Blytheville, the National Weather Service said.

South of that line, the weather service said a band of freezing rain and sleet is expected with cold rain further south.

In the nighttime hours, snow is expected to cover much of the northern two-thirds of the state. A narrow band of freezing rain and sleet is expected south of that, and cold rain further south. 

Meteorologist John Robinson said temperatures are expected to fall into the 20s in west central, central and east central Arkansas. Icy areas could be seen Monday morning in areas where wind does not dry the pavement. 

Ice accumulations are expected to be less than 1/10-inch in most areas, but some place could see up to a quarter-inch. Current models show Faulkner County could see more than an inch of snow.

A winter weather advisory is currently in effect in Faulkner County.
