Christmas Snow A Real Possibility
The computer models continue to show rain changing to snow Christmas Day. Right now, the data points to high temperatures being set early in the day and probably in the low to mid 40s. Then as the colder air works in, the rain could change to a wintry mix then to snow late in the afternoon and into the evening across much of Arkansas. The most favored areas right now are central and north, but southern Arkansas may have a chance too. Another big story will be the wind and I think there could be sustained wind speeds around 15-20 mph and gusts to 25-30 mph with the gradient I see setting up. I will make my preliminary snowfall amount map Sunday, but until then, I'll show you what the computer models are guessing. We'll have a better sampling of the storm as it moves ashore and better data is available. This will increase the computer models accuracy.
IT'S A LONG VIDEO, BUT PLEASE WATCH. IT GOES VERY IN DEPTH!!!!
As I always tell you, "never say never to Arkansas weather". We have the risk for some strong to severe thunderstorms late today...
Active may be an understatement when it comes to the weather over the next 5 days. The first round of rough weather arrives Wednesday after...
Last Saturday we started to see the possibility for a tropical system to affect Arkansas. It's looking more and more likely at least so...
