JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) – Good morning! It is Thursday, Jan. 6. Plan your day on Good Morning Region 8.
Sleet and snow have started this morning and won’t let up until around noon.
As activity starts to peak from 7-9 a.m., roads will become slick in spots. Where heavier bands of sleet and snow set up, travel may be more difficult compared to other spots.
Some places along the Missouri state line, southern Missouri, and the Bootheel may see 1-2″ by the time precipitation ends.
Sleet will cut down on snow accumulations. Most of us see below an inch of snow and sleet.
It’ll feel like the teens today and stay cold until we warm up this weekend.
Meteorologist Zach Holder has your forecast coming up at the top of the hour.
The Region 8 News team is also keeping a close eye on the weather and the roads.
