Snow in Saline County
How is the South different from the North when it comes to winter weather?
Head to, say, Iowa and notice what they do when it snows. They get up, clean off the streets a bit and go on as usual. It’s not big deal, of course, as it snows all winter long.
We Arkansans, however, aren’t so accustomed to snow, sleet and the rest of that frozen stuff. It’s a big deal here in Benton when it snows and we’ve had flurries since late afternoon. Those flurried turned into large snowflakes around 11 p.m. and the National Weather Service in Little Rock tells us to expect around one-half inches or less of accumulation overnight and a low of 28 degrees in central Arkansas.
Furthermore, the Weather Service forecast snow through Wednesday until 11 a.m. with another half inches of accumulation possible. Expect an afternoon high temperature of about 46 degrees, sunny skies and then an overnight low around 25 degrees.
The forecast calls for high temperatures around 50 degrees through the rest of the week and the weekend.
