UPDATE: NWS - Special Weather Statement

455 AM CST Mon Nov 11 2019

The Situation
A strong cold front will move across the Mid-South this
afternoon and evening, bringing much colder air to the region.
Widespread rain is expected to change over to a mixture of light snow and
sleet late this afternoon in northeast Arkansas, far northwest
Tennessee, and the Missouri Bootheel, with the rain-snow line
moving south during the evening and early morning hours. A period
of freezing drizzle is also possible as the precipitation tapers
off tonight.

Cold Air Arrives and Moisture Pulls Out
While we do anticipate the changeover to light wintry
precipitation, the cold air will be arriving as the moisture is
pulling out of the area. This will limit accumulations across the
Mid-South. At this time, there is a potential for a light dusting up to perhaps
a half inch of snow, mainly north of a line from
Bolivar, to Decaturville. This may result in some slick spots on
bridges and overpasses as temperatures fall below freezing
tonight. That said, many areas will not receive measurable
accumulations.

Dangerous Wind Chills Tuesday Morning
Arctic air and strong north winds will accompany this cold front.
Winds will gust to 35 mph this evening along and west of the
Mississippi River. Gusty winds and temperatures in the low to mid
20s Tuesday morning will result in wind chill readings in the
single digits and teens. Temperatures on Tuesday will struggle to
reach the freezing mark in many areas, keeping wind chills in the
upper teens to mid 20s throughout the afternoon. Clear skies and
decreasing winds will allow temperatures to bottom out Wednesday
morning with lows in the mid teens to near 20 degrees.
