Wind chills are forecast to be in the single digits across much of Arkansas on Monday morning.

Thursday's high is expected to be near 31 and the low about 15. There is a slight chance of rain and snow showers after then. "The valleys also have the potential to experience heavy snow accumulations".

A wind chill advisory is in place in Livingston and Ontario Counties from 9 p.m. Wednesday until noon Thursday. Arctic high pressure will build north of the region tonight, driving colder air into the region, resulting in temperatures in the teens overnight, the weather service said. If it does come, the forecast calls for snowfall of up to an inch starting late Sunday night. Forecasters say the snap is here for at least the next seven days and could get worse.

Clarke said residents should brace for the cold blast by ensuring that their homes are properly heated and insulated and that pets are kept from harsh temperatures.
