Like Dorothy was not in Kansas anymore, I think we can safely say the warm weather in December is nothing but a distant memory.
An area of low pressure aloft is moving through the area with rainfall. The air above us is super cold so it's snowing just off the surface. If temperatures were a bit colder here, we would have snow. As it is now, some snow is mixing in with the rain as far south as central Arkansas. Later this afternoon and early evening, the rain could change to some wet snowflakes before ending according to new hi resolution model data. Temperatures in the metro should stay above freezing until early Sunday morning. At that time the moisture will be gone. At this time, we're expecting little if any accumulation due to the warmer surface temperatures IF it does turn to a little snow.
MUCH colder and drier air will work into the state tonight with strong winds. This will clear skies out and take wind chill values down into the single digits and teens.
