In an update to an earlier forecast, the National Weather Service, Little Rocks, continues to project very cold temps Monday night as a cold front crosses the state, but the slight chance for snow is no longer mapped for Van Buren County.
The weather change is expected a an Arctic cold front crosses the state.
Cold, much colder than the earlier projections with single-digit wind chills Monday night into Tuesday morning will follow frontal passage. The very cold air is expected to make wet road ways icy overnight.
Current projections show an at-most light snow of a half inch accumulation as the front passes, possibly more in higher elevations, the map supplied by the service shows snow fall well to the east of the county.
The Winter Weather Advisory is only in the most southeast corner of the state.
This same Arctic Cold Front is expected to set records elsewhere in the country, with wind chills reaching -60 in the upper Mississippi Valley into the Great Lakes region. (Frostbite is expected on any exposed skin at temps colder than -40.)
