January 26-28 Arkansas Winter (Ice) Storm
Here are pictures from around the area of Western Arkansas. Most of the pictures below were from Northern Johnson county and Southern Newton County. Elevation played a big role in the amount of Ice that was accumulated. Ice was even quite variable at the same elevations at different locations. Most of the severe ice accumulations (greater than 1/2 inch) were above about 1300 feet. Locations I visited above 2000 feet had ice accumulations of at least 1 inch.
The two pictures above were taken in the area of the Fern community in Northwest Franklin county, AR.
On the left is from north of Ozark, AR and the right is along the Mulberry River showing the ice at higher elevations.
The pictures above were taken in the Salus and Fallsville area in Northern Johnson County and Southern Newton County, Arkansas. Elevations in this area is consistantly around 2000 feet. Ice accumulations were around 1 inch to isolated spots of 2 inches. At 2 inches most all trees had fallen or had their tops broken off.
These pictures were taken in Ozone, AR. This area had around an inch of ice but was quite a mess due to a large number of large pine trees that were overcome by the ice accumulations.
And finally these pictures were taken in Western Johnson County and Eastern Franklin County. The lake is Horsehead Lake and again shows the difference in ice accumulation due to elevation.
