Update: More Ark snow on tap, but in lesser volume

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -- Snow is in the forecast again for Arkansas but the National Weather Service says the coming winter weather likely won't be as much of a disruption as Thursday's snowfall.

Forecasters said Friday that wintery precipitation will start falling late Saturday night in the state's northwest and the system isn't expected to exit Arkansas until Monday morning.

But the system is expected to drop only a couple of inches of snow in extreme north Arkansas and about an inch in central Arkansas.

There could be some freezing rain as the precipitation begins to fall, but it is expected to change over to snow relatively quickly.
Forecasters say high temperatures will be warm enough on Sunday and Monday that most roads should not be icy, except for bridges and some rural roads.
