Temperatures today have already made it to 60, but our warm up is basically done as a cold front has moved through and will drop temperatures through the rest of the afternoon and evening. To give you an idea of how cold the air is behind this front, we are at 61 as of 2pm, and it is 37 back in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
This front, in its wake, may be able to trigger a sprinkle, or even a snow flurry, overnight. Nothing will accumulate or be measurable, and the best chance for a flurry will be north of Highway 16, but a flurry may make it to the ground. Winds will be strong from the northwest tonight and tomorrow, making our wind chills for Saturday stay locked in the 30s.
We return to the 50s for Sunday and 60s for Monday before our next cold front arrives. This front will bring some rain showers late on Monday and into Tuesday morning/early afternoon. This front will depart and leave a nice Wednesday before a stronger cold front arrives on Thursday. As of now, which is still 6 days out, there are strong indications from all models that we could be dealing with some nasty storms on Thursday. I am going to err on the side of caution for now because a lot can chance in 6 days, but be aware that we could be talking about a severe weather event late next week.
