Special Weather Statement - NWS

356 AM CST Mon Jan 31 2022

...Winter weather possible later this week...

An Arctic cold front will begin to slowly push into the area with
increasing rain chances Tuesday night into Wednesday. Late
Wednesday night into Thursday a freezing and subfreezing temperatures
will filter into the area and rain will gradually change to
wintry mix of freezing rain, sleet an snow. Lingering
precipitation late Thursday night would likely change over to all
snow. The changeover will spread slowly southeast across the area
on Thursday. Low pressure will track along the slow moving front
resulting in precipitation continuing through Thursday with
significant amounts of winter precipitation possible across at
least part of the Mid- South. There are lots of uncertainties with
the location of the cold front and track of Thursday's low
pressure system so the exact location and timing of winter
precipitation is unknown. At this time it looks like Northeast
Arkansas and the Missouri Bootheel stand the best chance of seeing
significant winter weather but there is at least some threat as
far south as the I-40 corridor.

Stay tuned to the latest forecasts throughout the upcoming week.
