Tuesday, January 14 Forecast Discussion

Sunshine has been the story of the day as we have rebounded into the 60s for us today. As temperatures drop tonight, clouds will begin to arrive with a cold front that is currently passing through Arkansas. This front could bring some drizzle to a light shower across the area overnight, with locations along and north of Highway 16 possibly squeezing out a snow flake or two. The main limiting factor is the amount of moisture in the atmosphere where snow crystals develop, which is why even the chance at seeing a snow flake is very small. I expect even locations north of Highway 16 to see all rain, but there is a very small outside shot at a snowflake making it to the ground. Obviously, no accumulations are expected.

Wednesday will see very strong northwesterly winds keep temperatures at bay throughout the day as we struggle into the mid 40s. With winds blowing between 10 and 20 mph, wind chills will remain in the mid to upper 30s through the day.

We undergo a small warm up on Thursday before another cold front arrives for Friday and knocks temperatures back down into the 40s with lows near 20 entering the weekend. Highs will climb back through the 50s through the weekend into next week before our next good shot at rain looks to come on Tuesday with a new area of low pressure developing in the Gulf.
