Snow, Snow and more snow on the way

The forecast is in and it is not good, again.

The National Weather Service office in North Little Rock said on Saturday that significant snow was expected in central Arkansas on Sunday and Monday with accumulations in Pulaski County forecast to be four to five inches. It was originally forecast as five to six inches.

That forecast led to a Winter Storm Warning for 63 of the state's 75 counties that starts at noon on Sunday and continues through Midnight on Monday. The remaining 12, all in east and southeast Arkansas are in a winter storm watch.

The snow is expected to start in  Pulaski County around noon and continue through much of the afternoon, then picking back up overnight and snowing for much of the day on Monday, which is Presidents Day, a holiday.

The forecast also said, "much colder air will settle over the state today and into the middle of next week as an arctic air mass builds over the area."

Lows will possibly be in the single digits on Monday and Tuesday with "wind chills to be even more significant."

There's also a chance for more snow as, "an additional round of winter weather will be possible on Wednesday and into Thursday with more accumulating snow not out of the realm of possibility."
