Northwest Arkansas Sees Latest Snowfall On Record

LITTLE ROCK — A May snowfall dropped as much as 2 inches in parts of northwest Arkansas in the latest snowfall on record for the state.
The National Weather Service reports 2 inches of snow fell Friday morning in Siloam Springs and nearly an inch fell in Fayetteville.
Meteorologist Amy Jankowski of the weather service office in Tulsa said the wintery precipitation was moving east into Carroll and Madison counties.
Police and sheriff’s departments in northwest Arkansas didn’t report any significant accidents Friday morning. Jankowski said ground temperatures are warm enough to prevent accumulations on roads.
The weather service office in Little Rock says the latest snow accumulation on record was at Corning on April 24, 2010, and the latest trace was at Fayetteville, Gravette and Harrison on April 30, 1903.
