New post Wednesday dealing with the "Wild Weekend Weather".
Be sure to check out "Ninja's Corner" for a special Christmas message from NOAA weather radio... it's a good laugh!

6:30 PM Tuesday Update... Just had a chance to look at some of the latest info. out there and I feel the late run of our model "Futurecast" from Monday night shows what should happen. I have it reposted below. I want to keep stressing how this is not going to be a big deal, but it will put a smile on the face of snow lovers. Remember the address to send pictures is email@example.com
I will have a new post Wednesday dealing with the "Wild Weekend Weather"
|Late Monday run of Futurecast.|
Noon Tuesday Update... WOW, futurecast has really back off on the snowfall potential tonight.
|Tuesday AM Futurecast Run|
11AM Tuesday Update... While I'm not sold on details yet, there's the possibility we have some brutally cold weather Sunday into Monday. I want to see what the Euro has with this system before I bite. It has the POTENTIAL to be a very cold, very windy, and cloudy Sunday. Light snow would be possible across the north and wind chill values could be in the teens and 20s easily during the day. After I look at more data, I'll start a new post.
We started tracking this system here on the blog the Saturday following Thanksgiving. The European model showed a healthy snow storm while the GFS showed absolutely nothing. Then the models flip flopped and it was the GFS showing the snow while the Euro backed off. Then both models completely backed off of the snow. Slowly, they started coming back around to a solution that has the snow, but not much of it.
If you think it's wild, that's typical of the long range models to do this.
Posted below are the last two runs of our exclusive model, "Futurecast". The first image is the latest one showing what I have been thinking for the past couple of days. The higher elevations of western Arkansas will see the most... and it won't be much. I wouldn't be surprised to see a healthy dusting to 1 inch atop places like Rich Mountain near Mena. Snow lovers, this isn't a typical snow set up as the storm is moisture starved. It will fight dry air, and for a time, temperatures could be a bit above freezing as the light precipitation starts. Nevertheless, I do think flakes will fly and WE WANT YOUR PICTURES.... firstname.lastname@example.org
I know we have several bloggers in this area of the state from Mena to DeQueen to Umpire. Let us know what you see and show us your snow!
Snowbirdbob's "Sweet Spot" is Magnolia where he says up to 1'' will be possible there. We'll see how good his predictions are!
Now onto next weekend. There's some disagreement on the models with the timing and placement of a storm. Right now, I think it's safe to say we'll have a chance for rain followed by very windy and cold weather once again. Where the wrap around moisture sets up in the cold air sector is up for debate. I'll have more on this Wednesday.
Thanks for all the well wishes. I think it's time to see the doctor. Fever, soar throat, and feeling like you've been hit by a truck. I hear this is going around. I realized how bad it was last night when I woke myself up snoring. LOL
