One to two inches are likely with much colder air streaming in behind it, dropping temperatures below freezing with wind chills in the 20s. There may be a a light wintry mix at times Wednesday evening just north of Arkansas. If anything reaches Arkansas, it will melt on contact. That cold air will last into Halloween night for trick-or-treating.
