With temperatures dropping into the 30s and lower 40s on Sunday, Faulkner County could yet again see a chance for wintry precipitation Sunday into Monday.

The system would be the third in about a week for the region.

Forecasters say central Arkansas could see 1 to 3 inches of light snow.

As of the 7 p.m. deadline Saturday, a winter storm watch is only in effect for southwest Arkansas, with a combination of snow, sleet and freezing rain possible.

Another round of light snow is possible late Monday, with highs in the 20s and lows in the teens.

The Log Cabin Democrat will have updates regarding the forecast, any closings and road conditions at thecabin.net.
