We just got off of a conference call with the NWS in Memphis and they are very impressed with this system. In fact, they are forecasting 6+" of snow in the extreme northern parts of Arkansas. Here in Jonesboro, they are going to go with about 4" of snow and sleet. South of Jonesboro, the accumulations drop off quickly.
I'm going to look at the situation a little closer and post another update soon, but I wanted you to know the thoughts of the NWS.
They will be issuing a Winter Storm Warning for Jonesboro and a Heavy Snow Warning for places north of Jonesboro. Our crawl system isn't even programed to take in Heavy Snow Warnings!!!
I have a news meeting to go to... Our official forecast will be out soon.
