If you are traveling east of Arkansas into MS and TN and north of the state towards the Ohio River valley, expect winter storm conditions.
We will have a return to cold this weekend with highs mainly in the 30s and lows in the teens and 20s.
The models differ on what will happen Monday or Tuesday. The European is very consistent with a wave of low pressure bringing wintry weather to the state and the GFS has little to nothing. Remember, the past is a guide to the future. It hurts to say this, but the Euro hasn't been that great lately. GFS hasn't been great either. This is a very low confidence forecast for that reason and because it's in the long range.
The following images are the GFS from WeatherBell.com.
|It's a cold rain late Thursday with a changeover across Oklahoma and FAR NW Arkansas.|
|From 6PM Thursday to midnight Friday. There's a change to sleet and freezing rain across north central Arkansas. It's still above freezing central. There could be a changeover across the north to light snow before ending.|
