Arctic Air Advances... !!!Attention Arkansas!!!
Yes, it will feel like Spring Wednesday Friday, then it will feel like the inside of your freezer for sure come this weekend.. Cold low level arctic air will seep into the state Friday. This has ice written all over it. Still can't say with 100% confidence, but this is classic textbook stuff for ice in the Natural State. Cold air is dense so as you go up in elevation, it actually gets warmer. Up above it may be well above freezing so that whatever falls is rain, then it hits the subfreezing low level air and wallah, ice ice baby. Amounts should not be too heavy since the jet will be roaring above carrying any disturbances rapidly, plus moisture will be hard to come by. But it doesn't take much to slicken us up.
