- No matter how much snow you get, roads will be slick. Whether it's 1'' or 3'', that does not matter. In this situation, it only takes small amounts to cause issues.
- Power outages should not be a factor.
- I think it's very reasonable to increase the snowfall amounts for much of southern Arkansas and I think it's possible for amounts to exceed 4 or 5 inches, but not much more than that for most places.
- Central Arkansas will be on the northern fringe of the snowfall so I expect a significant gradient in snow amounts across the metro. Again, it does not matter how much you get. It takes very little for slick roads to develop.
- The snow will stay on the ground for a couple days. This means if your school closes Tuesday, there's a good chance it will close Wednesday too. I don't make those decisions.
- Wind chill values will drop to -20° at times across northern Arkansas. This is dangerously cold weather! Wind chill values may drop well below zero across portions of central Arkansas too. Remember: PEOPLE, PETS, AND PIPES. Plants are already done.

|Our forecast as of 4PM Monday. There's the swath of 2-4'' or more from Texarkana to Pine Bluff over to east central AR. Again, I would not be surprised to see isolated higher amounts.|
