Compact wave currently centered over southwest Colorado will track quickly across the forecast area today.
Downstream airmass remains rather dry which will largely limit precip potential with the passing wave, however at least a low chance of measurable amounts does appear possible. Any precip would likely be snow given the cold and dry profiles aloft, and with snow ratios forecast above climatology, any light precip could result in minor accumulations.
Any precip will largely be confined to the afternoon hours, however, any road impacts appear low given both low amounts and marginal SFC temps.
Temps quickly modify Saturday with continued above normal temps Sunday ahead of the next strong cold front. Low precip chances across western Arkansas are warranted with the associated passing wave, otherwise, gusty winds and a return to below normal temps is expected.
Temps again modify rather quickly by mid-week beneath the largely dry northwesterly flow aloft. The next cold front is currently forecast in the Thursday / Friday time frame.
