LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Freezing rain, sleet and snow are forcing the cancelations of several flights at Arkansas airports.

Eleven arriving flights and 18 departing flights were canceled Friday at the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport in Little Rock, while six flights were canceled at Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport in Highfill. Another five flights were canceled Friday at Fort Smith Regional Airport.

Much of Arkansas is under an ice storm warning or winter storm warning Friday as a large storm system hits the state.

Many of the canceled flights are to the Dallas-Fort Worth area, which is also under a winter storm warning.
