LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas officials have warned drivers to watch for black ice after the slush left from a snow and sleet storm refroze overnight.

The Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department reported Friday morning that some highways in eastern and northeastern Arkansas were partly covered. Most of the other highways in those areas had some form of wintry precipitation sticking around.

Winter storms on Wednesday evening dropped sleet and snow across nearly all of the state. Northeast Arkansas was the hardest hit with more than eight inches of precipitation.

The National Weather Service in North Little Rock also warned drivers to watch for icy roads. Meteorologist Charles Dalton says sunlight and temperatures in the 40s should clear up most of the roadways Friday.
