LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Much of Arkansas will be under a winter storm warning or advisory later Monday as a blast of Arctic air could dump up to 4 inches of snow in parts of the state and send temperatures plummeting.

The National Weather Service issued the warning for Monday evening through Tuesday, when bands of snow will develop behind the front.

About half the state could see snowfall totals between 2 and 3 inches, with up to 4 inches to the south.
