The Twin Lakes Area is continuing to receive snowfall Monday afternoon and evening forcing most local schools to call classes off. The National Weather Service office in North Little Rock has received reports of up to five inches of snow having fallen in Gamaliel, but Meteorologist Sean Clarke says the snow should taper off later Monday night.

From the late morning until approximately 3:30 Monday afternoon, the snow was not sticking to the ground, and it was melting off of several roads. Clarke says that was due to the snow evaporating in the air.
