I'll have a new blog post this afternoon dealing with an historic winter event in Arkansas. It happened almost 30 years ago. You won't want to miss it so check back!
The train has left the station and is on the way for an extremely noticeable, but short visit!
I don't expect the front to move through central Arkansas until later Saturday afternoon, then the cold air will pour in the area with STRONG northwesterly winds creating wind chill values in the single digits up north to teens and 20s elsewhere. The latest GFS computer model really shows how cold it COULD get Monday with lows in Little Rock in the teens and highs not getting above freezing.
As far as the chance for snow... I don't see any. There's a small chance northern Arkansas gets a few flurries, but don't count on it.
Below is only one piece of data. It's Channel 7's exclusive model "Futurecast". I think it may be a tad too cold Sunday morning and afternoon, but it could have the right idea. Other guidance shows it not quite as cold. As you know, Futurecast did a fantastic job with the snow the other night keeping it out of central Arkansas and focusing it more on west central and southeastern areas of the state.
I will have post Sunday you don't want to miss... stay tuned and stay warm!!!!!
