A cold front will begin to slowly push into the area with
increasing rain chances Tuesday night into Wednesday. By Wednesday
night into Thursday cold air will filter into the area and rain
will gradually change to wintry mix of freezing rain, sleet and
possibly snow. The changeover will spread slowly southeast across
the area into 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.
