With the Lakes Region already bracing for extreme cold conditions over the next few days, a couple of storm systems could bring significant Snow to the Ozarks.
The first system is expected to move through the region Sunday into Monday while another system could hit the area mid-week. While forecasters with the National Weather Service in Springfield and Little Rock have not issued any advisories or watches, the NWS Office in Tulsa has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas including Carroll and Madison Counties for Sunday afternoon and Monday which states 6-10 inches of snow is possible with the first system.
Forecasters also say the system will be accompanied by increased winds which could push Wind Chill readings to between -10 and -20 Degrees.
Hometown Daily News will update the forecasts both on-air and online throughout the next few days.
