More frigid weather, then slow warmup across Arkansas

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) – Forecasters in Arkansas say it will remain bitterly

cold for the rest of the weekend and into Monday, but temperatures should start

to rebound into the 40s and 50s by the middle of the week.

The National Weather Service says colder air settled over the state Sunday,

and high temperatures were expected only in the 20s in the north and 30s


Monday will see morning lows in the teen to single digits and evening lows in

the 20s.

A blast of arctic air from Canada caused temperatures to plunge by more than

40 degrees across Arkansas on Saturday. Precipitation from storms caused roads

and bridges to ice over as temperatures fell.

Forecasters expect temperatures to gradually rise into the 40s and 50s by the

middle of the week.
