LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A storm system dropped more than 3 inches of snow overnight in parts of Arkansas and is expected to bring powerful winds to the state during the day Wednesday.

The snow fell primarily in the Ozark Mountains in northern Arkansas and the Ouachita Mountains in the western part of the state. State highway officials say most roads are clear Wednesday morning, although Arkansas 7 from Russellville to Jasper is partially covered in snow, and parts of U.S. 65 and U.S. 62 in the Ozarks have slush on the road.

Meanwhile, a lake wind advisory is in effect for a large part of Arkansas until 3 p.m. Wednesday. The National Weather Service says winds of 25 mph to 35 mph are expected with gusts exceeding 40 mph in some areas.
