The majority of the state, including Faulkner County, has been placed under a winter weather advisory as wintry precipitation makes its way into Arkansas.

The National Weather Service said light precipitation was seen in parts of western Arkansas on Wednesday morning as the system moved through. The majority of the wintry mix is expected Wednesday night and into Thursday morning.

The central part of the state is expected to see rain and sleet, with pockets of freezing rain, as the system begins to move in, however, freezing rain, with some sleet, is expected to be the main form of precipitation.

Meteorologist John Robinson said some areas of west central Arkansas and into northern Arkansas could see up to a quarter of inch of ice, while around a tenth of an inch is expected elsewhere.

Precipitation is expected to transition over to rain in all parts of the state by afternoon Thursday, as temperatures rise.
