LITTLE ROCK, Ark. –While many Arkansans have not seen their first measurable snow of the season, those in northwestern Arkansas have just recorded their third.

Friday morning, light snow fell across northwest Arkansas, blanketing roadways. Snowfall totals were all at or under 1 inch. Even with a small amount of snow, cold temperatures over the last few days made for slick bridges and overpasses on Friday morning.

Newton County light snow.

The highest snowfall totals were found in Benton county. One inch was reported near Highfill, and just under an inch in Bella Vista and Pea Ridge. Almost an inch of snow was also recorded in Eureka Springs located in Carroll county.
