...Much Colder Air On the Way... ...Light Wintry Precipitation Is Possible This Afternoon and Evening Over Portions of Arkansas... A strong cold front will move across the state today and tonight. While showers and a few thunderstorms will be possible (mainly over southern Arkansas) with the system, the bigger story will be the colder air moving in behind it. Temperatures are expected to drop from northwest to southeast after the cold front passes. It is likely that northwest Arkansas could see freezing temperatures by early afternoon, while central Arkansas drops into the 30s and 40s after highs in the 50s and 60s. Precipitation, though light, is expected to become mixed as the cold air moves in behind the frontal boundary. There may be a brief period of a sleet and freezing rain mix initially before precipitation transitions to snow. This would occur from northwest into central Arkansas through the afternoon and early evening hours, coming to an end by mid to late evening. At this time, it appears there could be light sleet and snow accumulations, as well as a light glaze in areas that see any freezing rain. Accumulations would be primarily on grassy areas and elevated surfaces, as well as some bridges and overpasses. The greatest potential for any wintry precipitation would primarily be in areas north of the Interstate 40 corridor. Winds will be gusty along and behind the front, and with the much colder air moving in, wind chills could fall to near or below zero over northern Arkansas by Thursday morning. If you must be outside during this time, take adequate precautions and dress for cold weather.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for a Large Part of Arkansas. .DAY ONE...Today and Tonight A strong cold front will move across Arkansas today and tonight. Showers will develop and become fairly widespread through the day, with a few thunderstorms possible. At this time, the greatest chance for thunderstorms will be along and ahead of the front, primarily over central and southern Arkansas. An isolated strong storm or two is not out of the question, though this appears more likely just south of the state. Markedly colder air will move in behind the front, and this will allow for mixed wintry precipitation to occur from mid to late afternoon over the northwest and into the early evening hours over central portions before coming to an end by late evening. Very light snow accumulations are possible in the higher terrain of northwest and north central Arkansas, with a light glaze on elevated surfaces and lesser traveled roads in areas that experience brief freezing rain. This precipitation transition could impact the evening commute over northwest and north central Arkansas. .DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday Through Tuesday Arctic air will continue to move into the state on Thursday. Wind chill values are expected to drop below zero across northern Arkansas Thursday morning. Elsewhere, wind chill values may drop into the single digits and teens Thursday morning. Wind chill values will again be an issue on Friday morning as readings over the north drop to near zero, near 10 over central, and teens over southern Arkansas. Otherwise, at this time, additional hazardous weather appears unlikely. .Spotter Information Statement... Spotter activation will not be needed. && Visit NWS Little Rock on the web.

The timing of the wintry precipitation is likely to impact the afternoon and evening commute. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow...sleet...or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities...and use caution while driving. A Wind Chill Advisory means that very cold air and strong winds will combine to generate low wind chills. This will result in frost bite and lead to hypothermia if precautions are not taken. If you must venture outdoors...make sure you wear a hat and gloves. &&
