4:00 pm update:
A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for portions of NW AR until midnight and again from 5:00 am through midnight Saturday.
It’s a cold morning across Arkansas with temperatures in the single digits in NW AR to the teens and 20’s elsewhere with clear to partly cloudy skies except some cloudiness in SW AR.
A disturbance in the upper atmosphere is currently moving across Texas and Oklahoma this morning with a large area of light snow. This area along with cloudiness will move towards Arkansas today, so expect sunshine this morning with increasing clouds during the day.
The disturbance will weaken and the precipitation will fall apart as it gets closer to AR due to the dry air over the state, but there may be enough moisture for some light snow across the west and NW today and tonight with some light accumulations possible. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from 10:00 am until midnight for three counties in SW AR where 1-2″ was forecast by the NWS in Shreveport.
Today’s high temps will be cold across the state with highs in the 20’s and 30’s, then falling back into the teens and 20’s Saturday morning. Skies will be cloudy on Saturday with temps in the 30’s and 40’s. A frontal system will push north through the state Saturday night and could produce some wintry weather across the north and NW part of the state with a mix of precipitation types, before a transition to rain as temps warm by early Sunday. The front will then move back south with showers and thunderstorms possible on Sunday and temps warming into the 40’s and 50’s. Can’t rule out a strong storm around, but the overall severe threat is low on Sunday.
The front will then move back north again by early week with much warmer air moving into the state with highs in the 60’s on Tuesday, before colder air moves back south bringing colder temps by the end of the week. A good chance of showers and thunderstorms will be seen mid week, with some threat of winter weather Wednesday night into early Thursday.
