Now onto the weather, the NAM came back colder and wetter. I think temperatures will only top out in the mid 30s Thursday. The latest NAM indicates anywhere from 1.5 to 2'' of snow for Little Rock with higher amounts up north. This is NOT a forecast, just one of four daily runs of this model. The GFS is still coming in as I type this, but looks promising for small snow amounts in central Arkansas. I get the feeling from many that 1-2 inches isn't considered much snow after the big one we had a little more than a week ago. I guess we're kinda spoiled after our 6 incher! If we do get this, remember those roads will become slick. I will of course have a full update Wednesday morning! Below is the 00Z NAM snowfall accumulations. Look at those mountains with the higher amounts. Probably a little overdone.

We are still a couple of days away from this so timing, strength, and track of the low can still change. But right now, I don't expect very much in central Arkansas. Northern areas stand the best chance for accumulating snow, and even that won't be much with a general 1-3 inches and isolated higher amounts over the mountains.
Tonight, pay close attention to the twitter feed. That's all I can say right now. We're going to do something that really hasn't been done before on the Arkansas Weather Blog. It's kind of an experiment and it should be entertaining! Check out the maps below...
