The National Weather Service began issuing warnings several days in advance that conditions were favorable for a major snowstorm to occur across Arkansas.
A storm system bringing rain and freezing rain began moving out of Texas early on Dec. 25. The precipitation changed to snow during the afternoon and evening when cold air began wrapping around the moisture-laden front as it began moving north-northeast across Arkansas. By Christmas night blizzard conditions were stretching from Polk County to Clay County and into Missouri.
