A hazardous weather outlook for Texarkana and area counties includes more freezing conditions this morning and a slight chance for snow flurries.
The advisory is for portions of South-Central Arkansas, Southwest Arkansas, Southeast Oklahoma and Northeast Texas, according to the National Weather Service in Shreveport, La.
Temperatures are forecast to fall into the low to mid-20s across the Interstate 30 corridor. Precautions should be taken to protect pipes, plants and pets. The wind chill could make the weather seem even colder.
There is a slight chance for light snow flurries around daybreak. However, no significant accumulations are expected at this time.
Some snow flurries were also reported early Tuesday in parts of Texarkana and even Shreveport, according to NWS.
Data for the Texarkana area goes back to 1893. The earliest recorded freeze in Texarkana was on Oct. 9, 1917, and the latest recorded first freeze occurred on Dec. 22, 1998. The average date for the first freeze in the area is Nov. 12. So with a freeze warning in effect for this morning, it looks like things are running near normal.
