Freezing rain and sleet began moving into Lawrence County Thursday night and spread across the county covering roads and bridges with an inch-thick layer of ice before changing to snow on Friday morning.

The National Weather Service issued a severe winter storm warning for all of Northeast Arkansas on Wednesday with predictions of heavy snowfall and driving winds. According to the NWS conditions were right for a major snowfall with a low pressure system moving into the area bringing abundant moisture on the heals of a Canadian cold front that lowered temperatures to around freezing on Thursday evening. As the temperature continued to fall the sleet and ice changed over to snow on Friday morning with rapid accumulation.
