A Winter Storm Watch will go into effect this weekend for portions of the Lake Area.

The National Weather Service issued the watch for both Benton and Morgan Counties, starting Saturday morning into Saturday night.

Officials say we can expect to see a mix of snow and sleet from the system, with accumulations up to 2 inches.

Additionally, because the track of the system is still not certain at this time…weather officials say residents in Camden and Miller should also be on alert and prepared if the system shifts south.
