TEXARKANA — A hard freeze warning is in effect until 10 a.m. this morning.

Temperatures of 10 to 20 degrees are expected across Southwest Arkansas and Northeast Texas, according to the National Weather Service Shreveport.

Another record low is expected in Texarkana Friday, according to NWS.

"The record low for tomorrow is 13 degrees in 1978 and we may be going to break that by a couple of degrees," said Gary Chatelain, meteorologist with NWS.

Thursday morning's low was in the 20s because of cloud coverage, Chatelain said.

A second snow storm Wednesday dumped about five or six inches of snow in parts of Texarkana and Bowie and Miller counties. Added on top of Sunday and Monday's snow, some areas had about 15 or 16 inches of snow, according to NWS. Exact totals are still being compiled by NWS.

Hard freeze conditions could result in damage to exposed pipes.

To prevent additional bursting of pipes, they should be wrapped, drained or allowed to drip slowly.

Temperatures are expected to slowly climb during the next couple of days and could be in the 50s by Monday, according to NWS.

Today is expected to be sunny and reach a high temperature of 35 degrees with a low of 14 tonight.

Saturday should also be sunny and the high could reach 40 degrees.

Sunday's high could reach 46 and a 20% chance of rain is forecast.

Monday's high could reach 52 and the low should remain above freezing at 34 degrees.
