A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the region until 9 a.m. Saturday morning, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).
According to the NWS, East Texas, Southwest Arkansas and Northern Louisiana has the potential to see a wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain throughout the area. The NWS projects up to half an inch of snow/sleet accumulation with ice accumulation less than a tenth of an inch.
A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibility. Use caution while driving.
The NWS advised cold temperatures and overrunning precipitation in the form sleet, snow and possibly light freezing rain will continue to be likely through the evening and overnight hours. Sleet and or snow accumulations of near to below one-half inch will be possible through the overnight hours across much of the region.
The winter precipitation should move out quickly Saturday Morning. More rain is likely from late Saturday Night through Tuesday as a series of upper level disturbances interact with a stalled frontal boundary across the area. Brief periods of locally heavy rainfall may lead to localized flooding. However, no additional wintry precipitation is expected at this time.
