Wednesday Evening - We have the potential for a Significant Winter Storm this weekend. There is still much uncertainty as to how exactly how this system plays out for us, but here is a look at what we are seeing so far.
An area of Low Pressure- currently situated to our west- moves across the region Thursday from northwest to southeast, bringing rain to start as the front moves in.Our neighbors to the west already have a Winter Storm Watch from Friday morning to Saturday night, as they expect 2-6" of snow to be possible. As we head into tomorrow, we fully expect a watch to be issued for our area too as we get closer to the weekend.
Temperatures could fall below freezing by Friday Morning, bringing the potential for rain to switch to freezing drizzle or light freezing rain. However, by late Friday night things could start to get dicey in NWA as temperatures proceed to drop.While we probably won't see the switch to snow until Saturday, we are still several days out and will be fine tuning the forecast as the latest model runs come in. It currently looks like late Friday night into Saturday, we see the transition from rain or freezing rain to sleet or snow starting from the northwest and moving to the southeast, with several inches of snow possible for parts of our area by Sunday morning before precipitation comes to an end. The greatest accumulation of ice and snow looks to be in the higher terrain of NWA.
We'll have more updates coming soon. Download our NWA Weather Authority App for the very latest forecast.
