Faulkner County could see up to 3 inches of snow Friday

This map, courtesy of the National Weather Service, shows snow that was expected to move through Arkansas on Friday. The weather service issued several winter weather advisories, including for Faulkner County, and forecasted up to 3 inches of snow could be seen in the advised areas.

Faulkner County was one of many Arkansas counties expected to receive up to three inches of snow Friday.


The National Weather Service issued winter weather advisories for many counties, including Faulkner, in anticipation of the wintry precipitation.

As of 3 p.m., no snowfall occurred in Conway.

Snow was expected to move across the state, beginning as flurries in the morning hours and developing into heavier precipitation in some areas in the afternoon.

Meteorologist John Robinson said the heaviest snowfall was expected late Friday afternoon and into the evening hours. The latest round of winter weather was expected to leave Arkansas — which has dealt with multiple bouts of winter weather this week — by late Friday night.

Counties under an advisory were expected to see anywhere between 1/2-inch and 2 inches, but some areas could see up to 3 inches. Areas not under an advisory were expected to see flurries or a dusting, the weather service said.

Because of cold ground temperatures, Robinson said snow was expected to accumulate to roadways and cause travel issues Friday evening.
