LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Many schools and businesses are closed throughout Arkansas after a late-season winter storm brought freezing rain, sleet and snow to the state.

The icy precipitation departed Arkansas early Monday, leaving bitterly cold temperatures in its wake. A wind chill advisory is in effect until 10 a.m. Monday and forecasters say wind chill values will drop below zero degrees in many areas.

Most state employees in Little Rock got the day off Monday, while many schools were closed throughout the state.

Arkansas highway officials reported wintry precipitation on roads in much of the state, except the southwest and extreme southern parts of Arkansas. In the Little Rock area, roads had ice or ice patches shortly before sunrise Monday. Temperatures aren’t expected to rise above freezing in most areas Monday.
