Transportation and safety officials are warning drivers to stay off the roads in northern and eastern Arkansas as a winter storm moves through for the second time in less than a week.

Transportation and safety officials are warning drivers to stay off the roads in northern and eastern Arkansas as a winter storm moves through for the second time in less than a week.

A state police spokesman said Friday morning that no fatalities or serious injuries have been reported but that some highways in affected areas were iced over.

National Weather Service meteorologist Jeff Hood in Little Rock says light freezing rain and sleet began falling Friday morning in northern Arkansas.

Hood said up to one-quarter inch of ice and up to an inch of sleet is possible in northeastern Arkansas where a winter storm watch is in effect. That storm is expected to leave the state by Saturday morning.
